Walking in the sunlight

Posted on

Abu Dhabi is a beautifully planned city. As we move closer towards the 49th UAE National Day celebrations, let me try and walk take you through some of the historic and beautiful places #inabudhabi – my home away from home.

In this video, you will see the fountains situated at Abu Dhabi Municipality. It has been a place to be for residents since a long time. With dedicated tracks for walking and cycling and with a very good full Basketball court nearby, evenings are always busy with fitness freaks.

A day at Al Wathba Wetland Reserves

Posted on

Al Wathba Wetland Reserve is the first area in the Emirate designated for protection by law and was declared a Ramsar site in 2013. 

The reserve is particularly known for its large population of Greater Flamingos – with as many as 4,000 living there during autumn and spring – but also hosts more than 250 species of birds, 37 plant species and a wide range of aquatic life. There are two self-guided walking trails (1.5 kms or 3 kms) for visitors to explore and a bird-watching hide to observe the flamingos.

Posted on Updated on

Established by the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, Al Wathba Wetland Reserve is the first area in the Emirate designated for protection by law and was declared a Ramsar site in 2013. Once a coastal salt flat (sabkha), it has now flourished into natural and man-made lakes that enable many of Abu Dhabi’s species to thrive. In 2018, the reserve was placed on the IUCN Green List of Protected and Conserved Areas making it the first site in the region to receive this recognition.

Due to the current situation, our Al Watha Wetland Reserve will be closed to visitors until further notice

Photo Speaks: When it rained here in Abu Dhabi

DSCN6671_InPixio2Neither an ECG report nor a Covid19 spread graph!.. It is just a view of the road from the top. It rained here in Abu Dhabi today and being confined to home, it was just another way of finding an object to photograph.

#Photo Speaks – Beauty of Palm Tree Leaves

It has been a very long time that I have been following the Date Palm Trees. For a normal person, it is just another tree. May be even those from and living in the land of these Date Palm Trees, it is. But, for me, it is not.

For me, it is a part of my life. Yes, my life here in the UAE. Looking at it each day, connects me with the realities of life. The seasonal changes. The festivities happening. May other things.

Yes, it is just another day and another Date Palm Tree and its leaves!.

Try and have a closer look at these trees next time you pass by them.

Dancing temple elephant of Kukke Subramanya

The most interesting part of my summer journey. The forest road towards the temple was extremely scenic and quite and it was raining while we drove towards the temple. Reaching there, and doing our routine prayers, we found that it was time for arathi and special pooja. So, with all the devotees we waited patiently and did not give much attention to the little temple elephant stationed inside. As soon as the temple bell rang, I noticed some changes in the elephant and then it became more prominent as the intensity of the ringing increased. As it was dancing, it held on to the bell tied on its neck and was ringing it to the tune of the music played by the musicians
