Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo: From Glory To Carnival

When we talk about “military,” what exactly are we thinking? Or rather, what do we imagine for this word? From my perspective as a visitor who grew up in an authoritarian country, before I travelled to Edinburgh, I thought the “military tattoo” was just a synonym for “military parade.” The latter often uses strict formations, precise marching, and almost mechanical uniformity to demonstrate collective power. However, the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo (hereafter referred to as REMT) showed me how they are totally different in an incredible way.

Golden Temple, Amritsar, India

Golden temple is a famous religious place in India, which is located in the center of the Amritsar city. It is also known as Harmandir sahib. This building is made purely with gold and is surrounded by a beautiful pool of water. I visit there by road with my family because it is 150 km away from my city.

I have visited this place many times in my life, and enjoy the peaceful environment.

Aare Ware Beach: An Indian Coastline’s Hidden Gem

Although I was born and raised in Mumbai, India, my mother’s village, Ratnagiri, is famous for its many tourist attractions, which include beaches, forts, temples, and monuments. My mother was born in Ratnagiri and spent quite a bit of time living there. Once every three months, I travel to Ratnagiri. Aare Ware beach is one of the beaches that not many people know about—but those who do, adore this beach.
