    • 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.

      Thank you for your help in advance. Really appreciate it.

      Is Air Costa reliable for flying between Hyderabad and Vijayawada and from Vijayawada to Chennai?

      Vijayawada Feb 28, 2015 at 3:31 AM

      Hi, India VT,

      Has ever anyone flown with Air Costa, the Vijayawada-based Indian airline? Is it reliable in terms of flight punctuality on routes between Hyderabad and Vijayawada and between Vijayawada and Chennai? It is advertising fares from 22 Dollars on Hyderabad - Vijayawada and 44 Dollars on Vijayawada - Chennai, cheaper than domestic flights in China.

      2. Is it recommended that I take a stroller to India to transport my baby around and also a car seat.
      3. What should I do about sterilising his bottles.
      4. Should I use bottled water, although my parents who live there do have a filter machine fitted.
      5. can I buy Pampers nappies out there and SMA Powder milk.
      6. What other child safety tips can anyone give me with regards to keeping my child safe and prevent him from falling ill.

      I'm probably asking a bit much but any comments are welcome. I'm a little stressed out about what to take and also how to handle the flight.
