Vacation time

I am on my summer vacations, reading, writing and sleeping. We must not forget the eating part either. Delhi is too hot. I needed to get away from it. So I am going to Nainital, a beautiful place, hill station really. It ought to give me a bit of relaxation.

So I will be away from 17th to 21st. Without internet. Ah, bliss! I will not be doing any sight seeing but just about relaxing in a resort. I need that. Actually all of us need that. I will write poetry and take pictures.

Yes, I will take along books. Can I survive without books? My list:

The Crying Tree by Naseem Rakha
The World I never Made by James Lepore
In Cold Blood by Truman Capote
Baby Shark by Robert Fate
Year of Wonders by Geraldine Brooks
Selected Poems of Carl Sandburg

I have scheduled a few posts to come up in the next few days. Don't forget to visit and leave your foot prints. And please someone link my Thursday post to Read Write Poem and Totally Optional prompts? You can find the those on my left sidebar. I will catch up when I get back on Sunday.


  1. Enjoy your time away, Gautami. And please, post photos when you return! Carl Sandburg sounds perfect for the hill country--I've been to his retreat in the mountains of North Carolina

  2. Have a good time. Take care.

  3. Have a wonderful, wonderful rest...may your creative juices be re-plenished ;)x

  4. Hope you have a great vacation. Everyone needs to get away sometimes and it sounds like you've planned some well deserved down time. Enjoy your reading.

  5. the weather forecast for delhi is 42 deg C today. aren't you glad you are not there? :)

    enjoy your vacation!
