This Taraf wishes all its wonderful readers a very happy and healthy New year.

Banaras, Kashi, Varanasi whatever you call it, they all lead you to the same place on the world map, i.e., the longest living city. Vedic Culture, Ethnic Tribes, Mahabharata, Buddha, Mughals, British, World Wars, riots, Banaras has seen it all, as the archaeological evidences advocate traces of civilization back in 2000 BC.

‘The greatest part of a road trip isn’t arriving at your destination. It’s all the wild stuff that happens along the way.’
We had been on a lot of single day road trips but did not ever experience the wilderness of being on the roads for a few days at a stretch. August 2016, it was, and we planned a 12-day long road trip through none other than the royal state of Rajasthan. Why Rajasthan? Because no one is unaware of the rich heritage this state boasts of. It is one state that offers you numerous places to see, varied experiences and adventures and is probably the most vibrant region of India.
