Ajanta, Ellora are world renowned Heritage structures. I was awestruck when i visited in broad daylight and the light wasn't that good to even see clearly the painting on ceiling. Wonder how the artist must have painted!

I bet that place is beautiful, Hitendra. The list of what we could write about for this contest is endless. You asked where poetry is on my top ten list. WHy it's in the line where I said: "Alone time to read and to write!" (that covers LOTS of stuff!!
