In Pictures: A Love Affair with Dudhani

Allowing the wind to caress my hair and kiss my lips, I popped out of my car window only to treat myself with the soothing breeze of the trees and the water charms by the streets. The nature whistles by the lake excited the wanderlust in me, even more, when the swans started grunting by the lake and the setting sun made the sky all purple and gold out of love.

Dated back in 2012, when I had visited ‘Dudhani’ on being recommended by one of my friends as an ‘awe-struck location’, I had returned back from that place only to underrate it. However, I happened to ponder back to Dudhani recently; only to revisit and enjoy its wonders and appreciate its beauty that I had failed to recognize in my previous trip. And guess what..? This time it just took my heart away.

For your call of information- Dudhani is a small lake town located in the Union Territory of ‘Dadra & Nagar Haveli’ which lies to the borders of the Indian states of Gujarat & Maharashtra. It is easily accessible by road from both the states. However, A road trip to Dudhani is to be the best recommendation. Nearest railway station- Dudhani.

Dudhani welcomed us with a bright sun shining atop the mild green & yellow paddy fields and the lake slightly glistening in hues of gold and silver, circumferenced by the beautiful roads embarked by the green grass and short water streams, and lastly bidding us adieu with a pleasant sunset and a quaint night sky. Dudhani left me to feel like a liberated soul that loves to be nurtured by nature. This Photo Blog will count in all of those traces that I adorned in Dudhani. Scroll down to see it yourself.
