Strange luggage. . .
Well, it is not fun, and I remember I had a thought for the family waiting for this strange luggage; yes, on the picture you see a coffin which arrived as checked-in luggage (Do not know if it was my flight). Not fun, but I found it very strange (well, it was the first time I have seen a coffin in that situation), and after a moment, I thought, well, people do as they can or feel the best way, but imagine this luggage has to travel with connecting flights, and gets stranded somewhere for some time on the tarmac of a hot sunbathed airport. . . .
The picture is of course not very good, as I did it “hidden”, very quickly, because lots of militaries were around. . . . Just to share a strange sight.
Jammu-Paradise on Earth
"Mata Vaishnodevi Shrine in Katra, Jammu"
The famous Vaishnodevi shrine of Jammu in India is famous for wishes being granted coming true. It is said that only those can visit the shrine in whose destiny the visit is written.
Its one visit can change your life in such a positive manner that you can hardly believe it.
To reach the Shrine, you have to first alight at Katra, which is the Indian Army base camp about 15 kms from the shrine.
Acommodations are available at Katra, its also quite safe when compared to Kashmir.
Best time to visit is Oct to Feb.
The Shrine is shown in many of the Bollywood(India's Hollywood) films where devotees travel the whole of 15 kms bare foot to reach atop the mountain.
Absolutely recommended for a visit.
