पिघलते सूरज में नए साल का जश्न- समंदर की लहरों में

कल आपने पढ़ा हिमालय से जुड़ी दो जगहों के बारे में। आज जानिए समुद्र से जुड़ी उन दो जगहों के बारे में जहां आप बीते साल का आखिरी सूर्यास्त या नए साल का पहला सूर्योदय देख सकते हैं- कन्याकुमारी का संगम: कन्याकुमारी हमारे देश की मुख्यभूमि का आखिरी सिरा है। यहां अद्भुत समुद्री संगम है। यहां पर बंगाल की खाड़ी, हिंद महासागर और अरब सागर मिलते हैं। इसीलिए इसकी महत्ता किसी तीर्थ से कम नहीं। अंग्रेज इसे केप कोमोरिन के नाम से जानते थे। तमिलनाडु में नागरकोइल व केरल में तिरुवनंतपुरम यहां के सबसे नजदीकी शहर हैं। देश का आखिरी सिरा होने का भाव भी इसे देशभर के सैलानियों में खासा लोकप्रिय बना देता है। लेकिन यहां की सबसे अनूठी बात यह है कि यहां आप एक ही जगह खड़े होकर पूरब से समुद्र में सूरज को उगता हुआ भी देख सकते हैं और पश्चिम में समुद्र में ही सूरज को डूबता हुआ भी देख सकते हैं। यह अद्भुत संयोग आपको देश...

पिघलते सूरज में नए साल का जश्न- हिमालय की गोद में

साल की आखिरी शाम को विदा करने और नए साल की पहली सुबह का स्वागत करने का ख्याल कुछ अलग ही तरीके से रोमांचित करता है। लेकिन हममें से ज्यादातर अपने आसपास की होटलों या रेस्तराओं की न्यू ईयर पार्टियों या डिनर से आगे सोच ही नहीं पाते। आखिरकार जाते साल की आखिरी शाम हमारे लिए बीते वक्त को याद करने की और नए साल की पहली सुबह नई उम्मीदें जगाने की होती है। छोडि़ए होटलों की पार्टीबाजी और नाच-गाना और इस बार अपने हमसफर, दोस्तों या निकटजनों के साथ जाइए ऐसी जगह, जहां ढलते या उगते सूरज की लालिमा आपको भीतर तक आह्लादित कर देती है। सूरज के क्षितिज में समा जाने या वहां से बाहर निकलते देखना सबसे सुकूनदायक पलों में से एक होता है। हम आपको सुझा रहे हैं ऐसी ही कुछ जगहें। इनमें से कई जगहें ऐसी हैं जहां आप एक ही स्थान पर केवल अपनी नजरें घुमाकर शाम को सूर्यास्त और सवेरे सूर्योदय देख सकते हैं। इस फेहरिस्त में हालांकि...

Its all about witches and devils in these carnivals!!

When winter slowly departs, carnival revelers live it up in the Upper Rhine Valley. This is when witches, devils, and other bizarre characters celebrate the fifth season.

In contrast to the Rhenish carnival, the Swabian-Alemannic custom reminds people of the local sagas and stories. The guilds follow strict rules here.

Colorful parades attract a costumed audience that hopes for bonbons and sweets, which the carnival revelers throw into the crowd. Wearing disguise...

On a wing and a prayer: Amur Falcon in India

After the mayhem reported last year, Amur Falcons have been safe in India so far this year, thanks to the determined efforts by the Government of Nagaland and the conservation fraternity. In 2012, the killing of around 120,000 Amur Falcons over a one week period in the State of Nagaland raised alarm across India. The bird stops over in Nagaland for a brief refueling halt during its long migration flight. However, the catastrophe may not be repeating itself this year largely due to the efforts of the Forest Department, NGOs and local communities. The Amur Falcon Falco amurensis is a small raptor in the falcon family that is an exceptional long distance flyer. It breeds in north-east Asia (China, North Korea and Russia) and in winter migrates to south-east Africa, undertaking one of the l
