Life & Lights: CharMinar!!

The month of Ramadan, the month of Prayer and giving is one of my favourite times of the year to visit the Historical and Architectural beauty of the city, CharMinar. Surrounded by the energy and life of the festivities, the monument glows like you would have never seen before. The eyes of the people from across the city, who walk down these lanes shine brighter than the brightest of the lights around.

The glitter of the bangles, the sparkle of the earrings, the laughter of the kids and women strolling past midnight with the freedom that just makes you feel you are in a totally different world altogether. The aura has that sense of excitement, fun, happiness, love mixed with the smoky fragrance of those “Patthar ka Gosht” that you just can’t resist. Experiencing the Old City, the culture, interactions with the people, as we walk towards the grandeur of the Charminar, eating anything and everything that we see on the way (trust me you just don’t wanna skip on anything) it’s one of the things that I have been religiously doing every year now.

I tried to take as many pictures as humanly possible but then after a point i.e. exactly after getting a decent enough shot of CharMinar, I packed the cam back in the bag so that I could truly be in the moment and savour everything happening around cause it’s freaking coming back after an year. I hope to visit these streets once more this year, to enjoy this breath of Life & Lights once more this year and I hope you do too.

XOXO!!
