Thanks for dropping by.

Let me tell you why this blog!!!!!!

My life’s mantra is based on a simple thought process:

“Life is one, World is so big, Nature is very beautiful but Time is fix and fleeting.”

I like and appreciate everything around me and being a pragmatic person to the core I see opportunities everywhere. To observe and to create is my way of life and my constant efforts are to capture varied nuances of world in most candid way through traveling to distant land, shooting photographs of mighty nature, writing my experiences. It is indeed candidly exciting to meet new people, explore new lands, taste new cuisines, and enjoy nature’s beauty from nature’s lap. I wish to experience all and live all the nuances of the world candidly. and hence the name of the blog is Everything Candid.

In all true senses, my life finds its solace in beyond metro places, capturing the candid surrounding and relishing various foods. India’s richness and diversity make me humble and at the same time encourage me to stretch my limits.

Other than travelling, photography and food, my passion is self driving. Self driving is an extension to my way of life which gives me enough freedom to travel and explore at my pace. My father pushed me to learn driving when I was in 6th standard and since then it has become an integral part of my life.

And to top it up, reading books on various topics redefine the limit for me each day. Reading opens up my mind and enables me to connect the dots and fill the voids of life. I love to read on History, Myths, Politics, Psychology, Philosophy, societal evolution, human evolution, travelogue, biographies etc.

Through this blog I wish to share my candid experiences with all living and yet to born people. I would be glad if I could encourage people to run from the safety of home and complacency of daily life to go closer to nature and enjoy other worldly life.

Thanks to all of you for being here and I hope you would enjoy my posts and tag along with me in this journey. I would be my pleasure to read and reply your comments.

Go Candid…..B U!!

    Wow is the first word came to my mind after landing on to your page. The pictures on the header itself was enough for you to get this follower. Loving your photography right away!

    If you love travelling to unseen places, I would recommend Jispa village in Lahaul valley on the way to Ladakh from Manali. It is fabulous and since you are close by it might be easy for you, though the road ahead from Rohtang pass is open only for four months of monsoon season.

      Hii Saya,
      Thanks for visiting my blog.
      Jispa is very much in my wish list, in fact I planned to visit Ladakh thru Jispa this year only but due to kashmir flood I had to change my plan.
      Now I am going to Dharchula and Didihat next week.
      Next year for sure. BTW, hv u been to Jispa or Spiti?

      • Saya says:

        Where are both these places – Dharchula and Didihat? I have been to Jispa and Lahaul valley upto Baralachala…yet to go to Spiti 🙂

  3. Himanshu says:

    Good Morning Saya,
    These places are in uttaranchal in pithoragarh District and located on India-Nepal and Indo-Sino Border.
    It will again be a self drive from Delhi on coming long long weekend 🙂
    I also aim to travel Spiti been upto Kinnaur from one side and upto Rohtang from other side.
    Have you heard of going Srinagar thru Moghul Road? Check out on Net

    Hi Himanshu, nice to meet you. We’ve spent some time in India. It was amazing! Three months in Tiruvannamalai, Tamil Nadu, then another 2 months travelling from Delhi, around Rajasthan, and across to Agra and Varanasi. We loved it all!
    Thanks so much for following our blog. I hope you enjoy the stories of our journey, both inner and outer. And don’t be a stranger – feel free to join the conversation.
    Cheers, and happy travels

    Hello Himanshu,

    Thank you so much for following my blog 🙂

    Great to find your blog here and it was a real treat, exploring your travel stories…

    Have a great time and hope to see many more interesting travel tales …

    Here’s a little message from Türkiye to say “thank you”. I appreciate your ‘follow’, knowing how many interesting and entertaining blogs there are out there.

    Blogging since June 2013, my little corner of the world tries to offer an eclectic smattering of posts, from basic amateur photography, to sharing my travel adventures over the decades, as well as day to day happenings here on our fruit farm in southern Turkey. I also throw in a few of my observations on life and lighter-hearted stuff for good measure.

    You are more than welcome to have a look around, stay a while and have a trawl through my small collection. There are plenty of drop-down categories within the menu bar to help in said digging process. Of course, if you have any comments, suggestions or concerns, feel free to let me know – I’m not easily offended 🙂

    Thanks again and hope you have a great day…

    Travel and reading does expand one’s mind, and your photographs and posts show your candid passion. 🙂 Thank you very much for checking out my blog, Himanshu! I wish you loads of fun and excitement in your travels.

    Hello and thanks for the follow

    I love your cover pictures and wasn’t even sure where to start reading. Our long story short when it comes to our travel fantasies: We are both fascinated yet intimidated by India. On one hand we love the food. culture, diversity and beauty. On the other, we hate the chaos that often comes with visiting, especially for foreigners that know little to nothing about navigation. And this is where blogs and people who write blogs about India and get to know us a bit come in

    WE have some co-workers here in the USA with roots in India that say they’d be willing to meet us there once we live in SE Asia but living away from India means they will be as foreign as us. We’ve met some wonderful people from my blog that follow and have offered to meet us or help us navigate once we are ready to take the adventure and discover all that India has to offer

    Of course we’re not even in Asia yet and have only lived in the USA and Canada so we’ll need to get past the culture shock before travelling to India. But when we do, we’ll read up on all the great posts on your blog and maybe we can meet soemwhere
