The Haunted Diaries!

Stories of ghosts and abnormal activities interests some, whereas they manage to capture someone's weak nerves. 
This time, I'm here with a list of those haunted places in India whose legendary stories sent chills down my spine.  1. Brij Raj Bhavan palace, RajasthanThe Brij Raj Bhavan Palace belonged to the former princely family of Kota, Rajasthan. The reason why it is termed as ‘haunted’ is; when in 1980s, the palace was converted into a rich heritage hotel; the resident ghost of the palace became the ghost of the hotel too. While serving as a British Resident to Kota, a major named Major Charles Burton was killed by the Indian sepoys in the hall of the building. Post Independence, the mansion became the private property of the Maharaja of Kota.


During his (Major Burton) night patrols, if at all he finds a watchmen asleep, then a voice is heard by the half asleep watchmen saying, "Don’t sleep, no smoking" followed by a sharp slap.
The fact that the ghost of Major Burton …

Wines with ITC Hotels!

Everyone has had wine, or at least heard of it once in their lifetime, but not many of us know everything that one needs to know about them.

WINE is an alcoholic beverage made from fermented grapes or other fruits. The natural chemical balance of grapes lets them ferment without the addition of sugars, acids, enzymes, water, or other nutrients. Yeast consumes the sugars in the grapes and converts them into alcohol and carbon dioxide. Different varieties of grapes and strains of yeasts produce different styles of wine.

That's not all. There's a lot more things that one should know about them. I admit, I didn't know much about them until I came across #WineWednesday by ITC Hotels. ITC Hotel puts forward a sommelier on its social networks in an interactive session and talks all about WINES!

This week, Mr. Shaariq Akhtar was ready to answer our queries on Italian Wines. Italy is home to some of the oldest and the most spectacular wine - producing regions…

The Yellow Chilli - Review

So, it was the time when I was returning from a fabulous road trip with my family that we checked in this restaurant at the Meerut Road Ghaziabad. Despite of having an outlet near my place, this was my first visit to this restaurant Chain. The board that read, "Sanjeev Kapoor's Yellow Chillies" rose our hopes before entering the restaurant. Why? Because all of us know what a great chef he is! When it comes to chefs in India, he’s our representative. The restaurant is nicely built and the interiors are put together to look sober as well as soothing. The restaurant was big, had much sitting capacity; done with dimly lit lamps to provide a pleasant dining experience.
We had to wait for about five minutes as the restaurant was packed. To wait for about 5 minutes seems okay since it was a Sunday evening. As soon as a big large family checked out, the staff quickly arranged the table again for us.

It was already 9.30pm, so instead of trying the snacks, we straight away hogged on…

Sinful Surprise!

You curse the person who rings the bell and makes you get out of your Air conditioned room! On a super duper lazy summer day, the door bell rang. Crawling, I left my bed; opened the door and there was a parcel for me. I took back all the curses because these surprises make me happy. What it was? It happened to be a Café Coffee Day Hamper. The hamper had a

Being a total coffee lover, I was delighted to see so much of it! Not only me, but my little sister too jumped with joy after seeing the coffee hamper.
The Coffee Day Espresso Maker has a stainless steel stove top which makes up to 2 cups. It takes in grounded coffee; 5 grams for one cup. (Preferred ground coffee: Arabica, Dark Forest, Perfect Charge or Mysore Royal, which came along).


The Mysore Royal ground coffee, from The Connoisseur’s Collection is great. With an aroma which makes you drool to the sound coffee it produces, It is just royal in every sense. Its …

ORIENTATION!
When our governing board of studies mentioned that the student has to undergo ‘Orientation Programme’, it meant that, students need to gel up with other people and work on their skills of presenting themselves. It is compulsory for each student to attend these 5 days of training.
Five days earlier, this bought around 50 students under one roof. All of them sat there waiting for the other to break the silence. The silence was broken by our FACULTY. The day ended by hearing around 50 new names, few role plays, and debates! I didn’t know all the names, but I knew that 10% of the batch was named as RAHUL (Too common :P) .
Day 2 : 50 students were divided in groups of 10 and given assignments! That was the time when I got to know that working with complete strangers can be fun! With professional talks, economic discussions, we started knowing each others; started keeping nick names, started having titsy bitsy crushes; we managed to make new friends! Winning was important, thou…
