Going to Amritsar


It was boring siting through 3 extended weekends. Finally a plan was thought of -- initially for Almora or Nainital. But we found that only one way journey from Dehradun to Kathgodam is a comfortable one as the overnight train that runs between these two stations runs only twice a week. That means one way of around 390 km had to be covered by road or take the brave decision to halt 2/3 hors at midnight at Moradabad, a UP town. None of us was in favour of any of these two option and so the idea of nainital had to be dropped. Further it is still raining here in Uttaranchal regularly which often results in landslides. My wife suddenly suggested to go to Amritsar as there is a daily train from Dehradun to Amritsar. Finally we all had agreed for Amritsar. I thought that only Golden temple is there at Amritsar. But after exploring a little bit, I found that we can see the Wagah Border (just 30km away) and the Jaliwanbagh memorial as well. So guys we are going there next weekend. Hope to write next week.
