About Bhangarh

bhangarh-fort_1443704897e12

Bhangarh Fort, Rajasthan

Bhangarh fort is located in the ruined city of the same name, somewhere between Jaipur and Alwar, in Rajasthan. The place is so haunted by paranormal activities that even the Archaeological Survey of India has put up a board that restricts people from visiting the fort area before sunrise and after sunset. Legend has it that a tantric named Singhiya fell in love with a princess from the fort. He tried to use black magic to get her to fall in love with him, but it backfired and he died. Just before his death, he cursed the fort saying all who lived within it would die.

Today, villagers who live in the area continue to build roofless dwellings because everytime they do build a roof, it inexplicably collapses. People have also mysteriously gone missing after-hours inside the fort. It’s an hour and a half by road from Jaipur on the Jaipur-Alwar road.

About Alwar

Located in Rajasthan , Alwar’s history dates back to 1500 BC. Located around 160 km south of Delhi , the capital of Rajasthan. A Rajput state for a long time, Alwar eventually fell to the Delhi Sultans in the 12th and 13th centuries. In 1771 AD Maharaja Pratap Singh, a Kachwaha Rajput belonging to the clan of Jaipur’s rulers, won Alwar back and founded a state of his own.

Known earlier as Mewat, Alwar gained reputation as a remarkable seat of art and culture under the patronage of Maharaja Pratap Singh. In the 18th century, Pratap Singh evicted the rulers of Jaipur to the south and the Jats of Bharatpur to the east, and successfully resisted the invasion of Marathas. It was one of the first Rajput states to ally itself with the British Empire. Like all the princely states, this stronghold of the Rajputs also came under British rule and remained so until India gained independence.

Places we will be visiting  Siliser lake, mooch Maharani Ki Chatri and Bala Quila

DPC Photobus to Garh Mukteshwar ( the First day trip)

The first in series is the Garhmuketshwar , An old historic town and place for River Ganga .

About  Garhmukteshwar

Garhmukteshwar is situated on the National Highways 24 joining New Delhi   with Lucknow. The town is the closest point from the capital where the river  Ganga flows. Garhmukteshwar is also famous for its bathing fair that takes place on the Full Moon Day in the month of Kartik. This city hosts two important fairs in a year. One is the bathing fair on the full moon day of Kartika and another fair is held on the occasion of Dussehra, both of which attracts tourists from all over the country.

The Gadho-ka -Mela which is a part of the big Garh Ganga fair is a huge trading center for asses, donkeys and horses.

Garhmukteshwar has also been mentioned in the Bhagavata Purana and the Mahabharata. It is said that Garhmukteshwar was a part of the ancient city of Hastinapur. The place boasted off a very ancient fort that is said to be built by later Pandavas, brothers of Kauravas. The name of the place is derived from the great temple of Mukteshwar Mahadeva that is dedicated to the goddess Ganga who is worshipped here in four temples. The place is also known for its eighty Sati Pillars.

Peacock Fight ——– After the breeding season by Sh Vinod Goel

Peacock Fight ——– After the breeding season

Peacock-Fight-2

Why do they fight is the natural question?. Can they not live in peace and harmony ?

I think they fight for the same reasons as the human fight.

They are also living creatures with emotions ,fear, hopes and dreams.

They fight to defend their territory, mating rights ,their mates and the food resources and of course their dwelling places however temporary they might be.

I have observed a number of birds such as mynas ,doves ,pigeons ,peacocks ,peahens ,house sparrows etc fighting during breeding and non breeding seasons.

Last year the breeding season was over by the month of September and most of the peacocks had moulted all the tail feathers .

I happen to observe a fight between two peacocks on 15th October 2016.The way they fought in the air and on the ground and the poses they gave were remarkable. I am sharing one of them . I am sure you will love it.

Like two wrestlers they fought . One of them slipped while defending the probable attack from the opponent which is still in the air ready to pounce on the rival. Yet another one in the vicinity is observing the fight as if trying to understand the tricks of the trade.

Enjoy the fight as I enjoyed the real fight from the eyes of my camera.”

What is Most Unique to Birds………..FLIGHT . Yes the photos says so… By Sh Vinod Goel

IMG-20170707-WA0009
Who does not like to fly ? Whether as a child ,as a student , then in the profession and of course to see the world and no doubt in the dreams.
IMG-20170707-WA0008
From the childhood one has seen the birds in his own compound and crossing the wall in a flick of a second. They just hop to the near by trees and reach any destination as they like. But when a child or a human being tries to do it either gets himself hurt or dies without realizing that the birds have hollow bones to have a light skeleton and some more characterstics such as wings ,beak ,eggs etc
Man has always thought of flying like a bird. Lot of pioneers risked their lives over many decades to get humans off the ground by various means such as flapping artificial wings to gliding from the high cliffs and towers.
IMG-20170707-WA0007
The first flight began in the year 1783 through a hot air balloon. But the credit goes to Wright brothers from USA who invented the first successful airplane in 1903. They were in air for 12 seconds and covered 120 feet. Their achievement is called the first manned powered and controlled flight.
IMG-20170707-WA0006
Within a span of 100 years we have reached a stage where most of the research is possible through unmanned spaceships. Not only that they have become part and parcel of our daily life as drones are being used for covering marriages as well as delivery of important items at your door steps.
IMG-20170707-WA0005
A movie such as SPIDER MAN has broken all the records through out the world as he is able to perform the most difficult tasks. Even our film industry has not lag behind in showing the hero performing humanly impossible tasks in movies such as KRISH, A FLYING JET and so on……
I too believe in action. Although I can not fly(except By airplane or helicopter ) but like to shoot the birds in flight and peacock is one of them. Whether peafowl is going from one tree to another or going up or coming down or flying to save his life from predators or fighting with his rival for the territorial or mating right ,I have tried to capture those moments.
IMG-20170707-WA0004
Birds are thought to be symbol of freedom. May cultures believe that they are a symbol of eternal life and the link between the earth and the heaves as they can soar into the sky.
Enjoy the Peafowl in flight.
