The Royal Heritage of Bhopal’s Begums – Part 2

Bhopal is not India’s capital, but it has all the features and reflects the great highlights of the country. Bhopal is actually the capital of Madhya Pradesh State. There was a time that Bhopal was the heart of an independent State. The city was forced to join the union of India in 1949, but since then the royalty attention has faded and the city’s monuments have been neglected.  However, there are still signs of the glory days to be seen in the ruins of the palaces and old mansions. My guide told me that the local government has become more aware of tourism, so there are plans to restore and refurbish these architectural remainders of the Nawab era. I could see, in the center of the city, that work had already started. The restoration process should result in a brighter future for this historic city

Exploring Goa: The Portuguese Heritage – Part 2

Exploring Goa: The Portuguese Heritage – Part 2

Old Goa still reflects its era of European occupation and influence. The Portuguese, as one of the best-known western powers in the 16th Century, invaded countries in the east. They advanced with full force to stay on the western coast of India, but the hand of fate reversed their destiny and overshadowed their presence after four and a half centuries. Their cultural influence and amalgamation with the Indian civilisation remain. There are no longer any Portuguese among the population, but their architecture has left a lasting mark on this region. I was amazed to see many churches, chapels, monasteries and convents in Old Goa. Religion is the theme that keeps the bond of culture and tradition alive through these monuments.

Insider Guide to Marrakech, Morocco

As I approached Marrakech after a three-and half-hour flight from London, my excitement grew. It was like coming to a meeting with a dear friend as that’s what Marrakech is to me. I love the city’s high red walls, the hustle and bustle of the souk, bantering and bartering with the traders and enjoying the simple but tasty food. Like me, many writers, painters & poets have been attracted to this iconic location.

The Royal Heritage of Bhopal’s Begums (Part 1) – Jehan Numa Palace

 

While our world is still male dominated it might be amazing for us to find a state in India that was once ruled by women in the 19th century. However, it is true in the case of Bhopal. Only a century after the city of Bhopal was founded in 1707 by Nawab Dost Muhammad Khan, the princely power was transferred to the Begums of Bhopal in 1819. The Begum means a Muslim woman of high rank

Exploring Goa: The Portuguese Heritage – Part 1

GOA is not, as you might expect, a country but a state on the South Western coast of India. Goa’s uniqueness has been moulded by its past history, namely its colonisation by Portuguese from 1510 until 1961. That amalgamation, of Portuguese culture with Indian traditions, has created a rather special place to visit. The Portuguese ethos in Goa is evident in church architecture, the colour of houses, the blended cuisines and the beauty of cultural events celebrating Christmas and Easter

EXPLORING OLD HAVANA, CUBA

EXPLORING OLD HAVANA, CUBA

The rhythmic music announces that I have arrived back in Havana – Cuba’s bustling capital city – which is high on most people’s bucket lists. For me, it’s my favourite city in the Caribbean and this is my third visit.

Havana is delightfully different from most tourist cities in the world. Cuban cigars still reign supreme, the intoxicating sound of jazz echoes around the streets and revolutionary slogans adorn the walls and portraits of Che Guevara remain to watch over the city.
