The climate in Leh during June is fine. In Leh proper, a light sweater is enough.You can see snow covered mountains in Leh itself. No need to go anywhere else. Most of the hotels in Leh are nice and comfortable. I have no idea about hotel Horizon though.There is high altitude prob. in Leh. Take proper medication with you. Many people also get stomach disorders.
SIR I AM AN ELECTRONICS STUDENT..JST LYK U I AM ALSO VERY FOND OF ELECTRONICS..SIR I AM CURRENTLY PURSUING 6WEEKS EMBEDDED COURSE…BT I WISH TO DO MORE ..WHAT MUST I DO NEXT …PLZ GUIDE ME
I am happy that you like electronics, which is a fascinating subject. However I am afraid that there are not many opportunities now in electronics field unless you decide to do something concerning computer maintenance and software development. After globalization, there is hardly any real manufacturing in India in this field. I wish you all the best for your future.
Sir I need pictures of Mehrgarh which is located in Baluchistan Kachi Plain Hills for my research work. Pleas help me out……
Since you are staying at Quetta, best and easiest way to get pictures of Mehrgarh ruins, which are located near town of Sibbi and Kalat, is to go there. If you go there and take photographs, please share those with me. On internet, much information is available including original excavation reports of the french team. Archaeological Museum of Balochistan, also known as Quetta Museum,located just east of Mizan Chowk is believed to have pottery from Mehrgarh. If you manage to visit that place. Please share the photos with me. There is also a museum at Sibi, which has mehrgarh excavated objects.
I really love your blog and the way you point out the small details. Please also show us the military aspects in the reliefs, sculptures, etc.. You have already done this many times, but continue it, thanks.
Thanks for your comments.
From looking at the art works(reliefs, sculptures,etc.) of the Mauryan successors(Andras(Sanchi, etc….), Sungas(Bharhut, etc…), Kalingas(Udayagiri and Khandagiri, etc…),etc) they look so similar. Why are the clothing, culture, architecture, etc, etc, etc. of these people who are far apart and enemies so similar? Is this a common culture spread by the Magadhan-Mauryans or was it like this before the Mauryas?
You raise an interesting question. Though it is true that there is a common thread of culture of India that reflected in clothing, hairstyles, architecture etc. all over north India and Deccan plateau, there have been subtle changes with progression of time as well as foreign influences. To note these, probably much deeper study might be required. There is an interesting book by Griffiths John; Paintings in the Buddhist cave temples of Ajanta: see if you can find a copy in some library. It is an old book. You can find hundreds of sketches in this book, that throw much light on this subject.
Though I am an avid fan of your blog, this is my first comment- rather a request for your email address. I need to send you a Loksatta article on Parvatibai Athawale’s book, and my email is abhicrit at gmail dot com
Thanks for your comment. You can find my e-mail address under tab ‘contact me’
Thank you for your post on ‘Restoring an urban river bed to its natural Eco-system; A Singapore experiment’. I was able to use that post, together with the pictures to teach my class of 9 year olds about rivers (in a localised context).
It was a very informative and in depth lesson which I was also able to simplify to their understanding. i look forward to reading more of your posts.
