Mandu

I developed some sort of stomach infection and was vomiting. So the two families decided to roam around Mandu fort (supposedly the world’s largest fort city with an area of 40 Sq Km) in two different batches making sure that i wasn't left alone in the hotel. The burn on my father's calf (he burnt himself by the silencer of his bullet on the weekend before we started) started hurting a lot. The doctor(?) in a small shop in the fort diagnosed that the wound was developing infection and asked him to start antibiotics. He also advised him to buy Hydrogen Peroxide and some ointment and asked him to clean the wound daily and do a fresh bandage.

Mandu is very beautiful with a lot of history and natural beauty. It has monuments starting from eighth century (King Bhoj) to British time. Rani Roopmati Mahal, Baz Bahadur Mahal, Jama Masjid and Jahaj Mahal are really good.


We are settling in to a nice rhythm. We have been living in hotels of state tourism board. When you are about to leave one place, you can talk to your current hotel and book rooms in the hotel at your next destination!

Bhavana,

You are doing fine. Great. We the members of the Saturday club miss you and I personally envy you.

Whenever people approach you for alms make them aware of there great history and what special they have. By studying and telling others they can earn their livelihood.


I wish all of you very best of the tour which will remain deep in your memory all life.

Dada.
