Bofors Gun – The Inside Story

Bofors Gun – The Inside Story

Radar – JetWings International – July 2016 This month, my image of Charminar, Hyderabad has been carried in JetWings’ regular BW section called Radar.

A WALK DOWN HISTORY – KUMBHALGARH

A WALK DOWN HISTORY – KUMBHALGARH

My article on Kumbhalgarh has appeared in July 2016 issue of JetWings, the in-flight magazine of Jet Airways. SURROUNDED BY THE MIGHTY ARAVALLI MOUNTAINS SITS THE SPLENDID KUMBHALGARH FORT IN RAJASTHAN. A WALK DOWN HISTORY – KUMBHALGARH Looking at a knee-high stone structure that resembled a small temple and housed a couple of vermillion-covered stone idols, I was intrigued and asked my guide about it. He told me it was the Bhairon Temple, and noticing my raised eyebrows added, “No….
