Mandi 2019

We are back to our summer home this month- Himachal. We just got back from a 6 day trip to Kinnaur district which was our first time ever in this remote region famous for its apples. Overall, we are spending much more time on the IIT Mandi campus this time (as I work on finishing my PhD thesis in these final few weeks before my submission deadline). We have been making local trips to Mandi to our usual spots and some short hikes in the hills surrounding the campus in Kamand. Tomorrow, we plan to go back to visit the GHNP (Jibhi this time) for some hiking.
Pictures will have to wait. Just this one for the sake of our Mandi tradition

Chilling at nana-nanis

Milestone update: Diwali break is here and the kids have left for Ahmadabad with nana-nani. Serious TV watching is on. Must be noted that they are also multi-tasking (working on unwrapping chocolate).
We are home alone without the kids for the first time ever.

The festive season: Diwali

Things that make Diwali special: the family getting together, good food (Daal-baati and dahi wade) and the once-a-year Puja.
