I am in high spirits , being just back from a visit to Jaisalmir, Rajasthan. It was a wonderful experience, a lifetime event, made possible by Sri Rajiv Nandi [ his mobile no–919874491759], a tour operator from Kolkata, with local connection, Sri Debasis Saha, an engineer from Bombay port trust.
In fact , it was not just Jaisalmir, but a cluster of places of tourist interest–JAIPUR, JODHPUR, JAISALMIR, AJMER, UDAIPUR, over a period of 9 days from 5 th nov to 14 th nov, 2019. Surprise of surprise (even for a Bengali who are generally known to be misers in informal circles among non-bengalees in India), is that our rate was Rs 18500/- per head, to cover food, lodging and transportation, with a gift-item for all of us from the tour operator. Even, tour operator went to the extent of celebrating a birthday of our respected memeber, Sri Swapan Das. In fact, our whole tour was filled with fun, frolic and enjoyment, never to be forgotten. But I must admit that our food , lodging was not of 5-star standard, those were just enough or little more, for the working purpose–what more we want?. In this day of high prices, I do not have any complaint in this respect. Food was prepared best suited to Bengali palate–rosogolla included !!!!!!!!, by Bengali cooks, who travelled with us all through, In a mini luxury bus.
There were altogether 18 members, apart from the tour operator, driver, helper, and three cooks. All of them, except me and my wife, are from Bombay port trust. They are my new discovery, they are all hard-working, bold, courageous, and risk-taking people ; some 30/40, years back they left their native place in 24 pgs, WB, in search of livelihood in this wide open world, now as a reward of their hard work, all of them are very much established in Mumbai.
There are scores of interesting moments of the tour captured by camera. I shall tell the story through those pictures below. Strictly speaking, many of the places of visit, covered during the tour were related to history; wars and their booty; varieties of weapon only to kill people, extravagant lives of Kings and Maharajas, their practice of keeping too many women, and many other expensive way of life.
I enjoyed scenes of pushkar, night stay in the camp at Jaisalmir desert in a full moon night, jeep safari at THAR desert, and the Rajasthani cultural event under the open wide clean sky in the desert-cold weather, is unforgettable, will be remembered for my whole life. Do you want to experience the same? if your answer is in the affirmative, contact Rajiv Nandi at his mobile–919874491759.
