Sharjah in Pictures

Sharjah is the third largest Emirate in the UAE both in terms of size and population. It would not be out of place to call this the cultural capital of the UAE. It is said that Sharjah has been continuously inhabited for 5000 years. Ok.. We will hold the history for another day 🙂
For now here are a few pictures to demonstrate the diversity in such a small region.

Ilocos in Pictures

Ilocos happened by chance.

I was supposed to go to Batanes, an archipelago province in The Philippines situated in the Cagayan Valley region. It is the northernmost province in the country, and also the smallest. As luck would have it, just few days before my trip, typhoon struck there and everything came to standstill. The damage was done. The flights were cancelled, so was the trip.

Indonesia in Pictures

Indonesia is a beautiful country. One could write pages and pages or one could try to pictorially cover it. I am striving here to do the latter. They do say a picture is worth a thousand words!

On that note, here is my Instagram account. You may love to follow it for these glimpses from across the world.

Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque

Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque

The word ‘grand’ in ‘Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque’, is not just a word, it tells us how grand the mosque really is! Everything is larger than life in this mosque of size of five football fields. Only natural materials have been used in the mosque such as marble, crystal ceramics, semi-precious stones, mother of pearl and even gold. As I enter the mosque, I am blinded by the sheer white of the 82 domes.
