Victoria memorial:A sudden visit..

“What is this life if, full of care, We have no time to stand and stare.” -William Henry Davies

 

hello everybody,

how have you been.? I’m good and in a spree of exploring my own city THE CITY OF JOY in a better way..we plan holidays,trips,we plan to visit london,paris,switzerland,america and all distant places..but forget to see the places we have near us,in our very own city..we don’t even get few minutes from our busy schedule to stand back and admire the beauty of places near us..

Rohit and i didn’t go out for a long time and this time we wanted to go to some different place,not to those boring shopping malls or cafes or restaurants,and no good movies were going on at that moment.As usual we ended up fighting(that is usual for us though).we were confused of where to go and what to do,so we just randomly decided to go for a drive around the city(at least the car had an air conditioner and we couldn’t find a better option than the car for saving us from the scorching heat).we were passing victorial memorial and i was like “lets stop here..it been ages that i visited victoria memorial,we should go in its such a beauty,i donut care about the heat,lets just go”.rohit immediately agreed and we ran in through those wide gates.ah!its amazing.no matter how many times you have visited this place victoria memorial will always seem to mesmerise you with its beauty..we sat in the grass lawns and had a nice chat.it reminded me of the times i used to go there with my parents as a little girl playing flying saucer,eating nuts,buying balloons..ahhh wonderful memories..:))..we ended our day by having phuchka chat and golas from the stalls right there outside victoria.it was truly a day well spent..and we both decided we will visit more places in the city than sitting in cafes and having expensive brownies and cappuccinos..feels much better>really>
