    My first effort to write a live update blog. So lets start.
    Earlier we planned a trip to jaipur by train but had to cancle the trip due to personal reasons. But the travel bug wad humming inside the head and brother in law suggests "cholo Vindhyachal chalta ha passa ha subah Jaa kar raat ma wapas aa jaya ga". We thought Varanasi bhe pass ma ha so lets go there too and trip was finalized by 6 in the evening that we will leave in the. Morning. Even one got into quick mode and after all the preparation went to sleep at 11 with dreams of next day's journey. After lots of efforts woke up at 4:30 in the morning and after a busy morning we left home at 07:00am full one hour late than target. No problem brother in law desides to drive and I just thought why not utilise this time to creat a travelog to pass some time. Currently crossed fatehpue. Road is all good it's a four lane and a third lane is under construction. Will try to update as much as possible with some good information and pics.

    As planned we could not leave banaras early morning we started at 10:30 for vindhyachal and reached at 12:30. Parking was just beside the trample. You would be prompted to park much before the temple but ignore them. Arti time at temple was 01:00 pm we stood in line and within 15 minutes we had a good darshan. After darshan children and ladies immediately got busy with the shops at the temple. As usual bought a couple of things and wasted tons of time .
    As usual every one was hungry and we attacked the restorant named choti wala Shukla bhojnalay (food was not good at all), "mood kharab ho gaya". We are now on the way back to kanpur started at 02:45pm.
