Celebrating 150th Birth Anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi at Lalbagh Flower Show 2019

Lankan Cabs Review, Sri Lanka

During the initial days of planning our trip to Sri Lanka, my husband and I were looking at travel agencies for whole packages. But after my Mauritius trip with Thomas Cook, I decided to plan our routes, book the hotels and activities ourselves to customize according to us.

Once we finalized our route and the places where we would like to stay at night, the next question was how we are going to travel from one city to another within the limited time that we had. Since we were traveling with my parents, we decided to go for a cab service over public transports. After searching extensively, we decided to book a van for 9 passengers with luggage space from Lankan Cabs.

My trip to the forgotten land of Garh Panchkot is engraved in my heart as if it was yesterday. Garh Panchkot is a ruined fort located at the foothills of Panchet Hill in the district of Purulia, West Bengal. The remnants of the Garh (fortress) bear a silent testimony of the Bargi attack during the 18th century. To give recognition to the main five (panch) clans (khunt) of the local, the kingdom established by Damoder Sekhar assumed the name of Panchkot.

Safely tucked away from the eyes of the mainlanders, there is an oval shaped fort of Murud Janjira on an island off the coastal village of Murud in the Raigad district of Maharashtra, India. The Murud Janjira fort is the only one of its kind and rightfully so.

The fort got its name from the Arabic word “Jazeera”, meaning an island. The name of the village Murud is derived from the word “Morod” in Konkani.
