Shikha was listening to this one a few days ago and it just stuck on… The words are beautiful. If you wish to view the entire video, visit –

I’ve the habit of playing with new tools, almost to the level of being obsessed until I’ve tried it. The iOS 11 brought with itself the screen recorder. I have tried it earlier but today I tried it in conjunction with iMovies and the result is here.

I tried sharing this one on Instagram and elsewhere but couldn’t manage to get the entire poem up. I’m guessing the blog won’t let me down.

Istanbul : Day 07

Our day back to India. 

We explored the Basilica Cisterns. It was an experience. If you are in Istanbul make sure you visit this place. 

One thing that amazed me was the proximity of the Aya Sophia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace and the Basilica Cisterns. The most important and interesting were the placement of the Mosque and the(n) church, Aya Sophia. 

If you seat yourself in the grounds in front of either, you have an almost clear view (apart from street lights) of the other.  

The last day was for the Cisterns. Good that we made it. 

I loved the city. Most importantly for its people.
