      Hi, Chennai VT,

      Is it easy to flag and board an ordinary taxi in Eillot's Beach and anywhere else in India without calling a taxi in advance? Will taxi drivers without passengers stop to allow passengers to board if passengers flag?

      I just want to avoid the autos.

    • Less touristy Kushti Akhara (centres) to recommend?

      India Mar 7, 2015 at 4:02 AM

      Hello everyone,

      Happy Holi Day there!

      Actually, this is me again need some help here from the locals.

      I would like to do a photo-documentary project about Kushti wrestler when I'm visiting India next month April. (Delhi, Jaipur, Agra, and Varanasi).

      I understand that there are a numbers of Akhara in Delhi, Uttar Pradesh and Punjab).

      There are even visitation tours catered for tourists. But I am hoping to visit some less-touristy centres and hoping to spend days and nights with them (ok, max 3 days). I want to document their lifestyle, I know they need to wake up 3am daily to do squats, sleeps at 8pm etc. I want to observe those 'rituals' as close up as possible.

      Could anyone recommend or suggest some contacts so that I could try to arrange with the person in charge? It can be any locations, I don't mind travel extra-mile to visit that particular location.

      I emailed this particular photojournalist, but yet to received any reply from him.

      Volvo Bus from Delhi to Dehradun?

      by rimzim Online Now Jan 29, 2007 at 7:20 PM

      I hear that Uttaranchal Road Transport now runs AC Volvo buses between Delhi and Dehradun. Apparently, there is an overnight bus that leaves Delhi at 10:30pm and arrives the following morning in Dehradun.

      It sounds like a good option but I'm not able to find out how to book a seat on this Volvo bus. Since I'm not in Delhi, I want to make sure the seat is booked before I land up at the bus stop.

      Anyone know how to book a seat on these Volvo buses?
      Any way to book it online?
      Any travel agents who'll do this long distance?

      Guest House / PG Accommodation for a 60-day Stay

      by rimzim Online Now Jan 29, 2007 at 7:14 PM

      We're looking to spend 60 days in Dehradun/Mussoorie in August-Septemeber 2007. What we'd like is a clean, inexpensive, 1-bedroom setup (preferrably with a kitchen) that can sleep up to 3 adults. Western toilet is a must have. Internet access will be a huge plus.

      Does any one know of any guest houses or private homes that offer short-term rental accommodation?

      Dehradun and Mussoorie would be our top two choices but we're willing to consider any area that is less than 1.5 hrs driving time from Mussoorie.

    • Another India lifestyle question...

      by lachydragon Online Now Nov 13, 2003 at 3:47 PM

      Hi All, Thanks to all the posters who are replying to my obscure questions! I (unfortunately) have another one though... I will be in India for two months and will be away from my competitive Dragonboat paddling team in Sydney. I am keen to keep fit and active in my time away and was curious as to what are popular active pastimes for people in Northern India (particularly the mountainous areas of Dehradun and Rishikesh) I will be here in Winter so a favourite pastime of mine - trekking - is out. But what are other options available in these areas, for instance do people partake in any paddle sports through organised clubs etc, and is jogging common or even feasible in these areas? Had I posted this on Lonely Planet I fear I would have 20 replies with snide, sarcastic comments. I appreciate VT users genuine responses to questions poeple post!! Thanks again for your help, Take Care, Lachy
