Lucerne is known by many names. Some say Luzerne and others call it Lucerna. It was pretty little confusion to get it cleared before boarding the train. And the railway official beautifully described how people from different ethnicity call it with different names. Whatever be the name the place has its own charm in its own particular way. Be with me for the rest of my trip to explore the city.

It was the call of the white fairies. A call very clear and distinct. It was from every corner. I could clearly see these white beauties all around.

The ever peaceful nation of Switzerland with its smiling people and captivating locale has the magical spell to enthral visitors. The very name entices people to see it in their dreams. I too had a wish to visit this wonderland someday and get smitten by its charm. The country is a founding member of many International Organisation but a part of none. It has not been into any war since two hundred years. A clear hint of it peace loving and welcoming residents. So, to experience it all I set foot in Switzerland through Zurich but got introduced to it through Interlaken.
The proposed smart city of Ujjain can better be called as a temple town. Known for the famous Mahakaleshwar temple, it has many other temples of equal religious importance.

This city by the bank of the Shipra river and numerous temples scattered within its precincts leads to a beautiful religious tour.
With the very reference of Mandu that first thing that comes to mind is the “Ship that never sailed”. For those who are not too familiar with this historical site of Mandu, I shall introduce Mandu through the very known Jahaz Mahal. By now all must have come to a conclusion that is a ship is in a land how will it sail. That is a thought very correct. But wait. There is a huge water body too. But still, the question remains the same. How do a palace sail? I would take you through Mandu from sailing to climbing. You just need to stay with me until the end.

And finally, I made it to this gazab state by visiting Indore. A lot of ‘gazab’… right? Okay, I better go straight into my story. So now, I will get back to Indore, the commercial capital of Madhya Pradesh.
