Essay on How I Spent My Winter Vacation

This year my family was not able to plan a summer vacation, so we spend a few days in summer camp and visited grandparent at our native place. I and my sister requested our parents for a long winter vacation and then happily agreed too. So, we planned a long road trip for our winter vacation. We all like winter season for trips because of overall pleasant climate and we see greenery alongside roads which makes the journey enjoyable.

Earlier evening, papa took our car to a service center to check everything. We started our journey early morning, my mother made sandwiches and tea for breakfast. First, we visited a Lord Ganesh Theur (place name) Temple which is 30 KM from our home. We took blessings and prayed for a safe journey. This temple is 1 of 8 temples from AshthaVinayak. Then around 9 AM we left for Indore. We took a quick halt at Shirdi, which is a holy place of Saibaba. We reached to Indore city by midnight, we covered 600 KM to reach there. We all were tired so we ate and had a good sleep in a motel.

Next day, we woke a little late as we were tired. Had Indori delicacies for breakfast and wander around the Indore city for an hour. At 10 ‘o clock, we visited the famous Kanch Mandir, almost everything is made up of glass there. We also had a quick tour of Rajwada Mahal. These places show us the glimpse of the opulent past of Indore and India. We find Indori people very kind, helpful.

We covered 700 KMs and reached Agra late at night. While traveling we booked a hotel from an online hotel booking service and we got a good deal too. After dinner, we slept within 10 minutes.

Next day, we woke up early to visit Taj Mahal. We reached the Taj Mahal gate at 7 in the morning. We were there for 2 hours and visited each and every corner of it. I have seen Taj Mahal thousand times in newspapers, magazines, and movie but when I saw Taj Mahal personally then I understood why it is so famous in the whole words, it is mesmerizing, a real treat to eyes.

That day afternoon, we left for Mathura and Vrindavan. We visited temples and took blessing from Lord Krisha. We reached there in the early evening by that time there was heavy traffic. We were also heckled by local thugs, they were trying to frighten us and asking for money. We complained to the traffic police but he didn’t help us. My Papa courageously maneuvered our car led us to the highway and then we traveled back Agra. This was the only bad experience we had on our whole road trip.

My Mother then explained to us that life always shows us good and bad experiences. We should be ready to deal with both types of situations. After her soothing words, we all took rest for the day back in Agra.

The fourth day, we visited Fatehpur Sikri, a small city west of Agra which was founded by Mughal Emperor Akbar. We saw Buland Darwaza, Jama Mosque, Tomb of Salim Chishti, Jodha Bai’s Palace. The tour guide showed us a secret door through which Anarkali was fleed. Guide also told us the captivating history of the place. By the afternoon we left for Jaipur, Rajasthan which is nearly 200KM from there. We had authentic Rajasthani lunch at roadside Dhaba before Duasa Town. That was the best food so far in our journey.

We reached to Hawa Mahal by late afternoon, we missed the City Palace because they close it by 5:30 PM. We were on a shopping spree, we bought various items from Ramganj Bazaar, Tripolia Bazaar, and Johari Bazar. Jaipur was not in our plan, we were supposed to hit back return journey after Mathura. But as they say, unplanned trips are the best and that is what exactly happened to us. Jaipur is a very clean, neat and welcoming city; that day I understood why Rajasthan is famous for western tourists. We decided that next winter trip will be Rajasthan,

We left city late in the evening, we were heading towards Pushkar, it is only placed in the whole world where you will Lord Bramha Mandir. Again, we reached late night at Ajmer. We booked a motel near famous Anasagar Lake. Next day morning, we enjoyed the view of a majestic lake and headed towards Ajmer Dargah Sharif. It is a very famous place a lot of celebrities also visit this dargah to take blessings. Around 10 AM we headed to Pushkar. We took blessings and spend an hour at Pushkar Lake. We also took a holy bath at Pushkar ghat.

Next, we headed towards a very long 650 KM stretch in our return journey. We skipped Udaipur as we will be visiting the whole of Rajasthan on our next winter vacation. We reached Vadodara in the early morning around 3 AM. This leg of the journey was tiresome, we took rest and visited Kiri Stambh and Laxmi Vilas Palace in Vadodara and left for home. It was the last leg of the journey, last 550 KM. While entering Maharashtra again we were welcomed by untimed but pleasant drizzle.

Though it was tiring, this winter vacation was the best time I ever spent with my family. We saw a lot of places within 7 days. We came close to each other as family. Next year also we are planning for a winter vacation. Everyone should plan such trips with family, it helps to strengthen the bond and we also get to see the beauty of India and magnificence of its history.

Short Essay on How I Spent My Winter Vacation

I like winter vacation a lot, this is the time of year when the climate is very pleasant. This year’s winter vacation was very special to me.

My parents planned a two day trip to Konkan. It is not far away from my home but we never explored this area. My Papa always talks about Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, so we planned a trip to visit forts in the Konkan area. We left our home in Pune and visited Pratapgad fort which is 150 KM from home. Before that, we also enjoyed Mahabaleshwar tourist points. I liked the Arthur Seat and Elphinstone Point very much.

We climbed around 500 steps at Pratapgad fort and we enjoyed the climb. It is the best things about winter, we don’ get tired easily in this season. We saw the gigantic statue of Shivaji Maharaj, the guide told us the history of the place. He told us how brave Shivaji Maharaj killed the Afjal Khan, we visited that spot too. We also bought some handcrafted items from there.

Next, we took a stop at our native place which 30 Km from there. Next day early morning we headed to Raigad Fort. We climbed it with Cable Car, this is the first time I ever sat in a cable car. I was a bit afraid but at the same time, I enjoyed it too.

Again, Guide told us the history of Raigad fort. We got to know a lot of things which are not in history books. After knowing so many things about Shivaji Maharaj, I decided to study more on him. I will also do my school project on the same topic. We took a lot of pictures on our trip, these pictures will also help me in my project.

I learned a lot from this trip and also had a good time with family. We should take advantages of our summer and winter vacations and visit different places. Rather than spending time on video games, we should get real-world experiences.

मेरी सर्दियों की छुट्टी पर हिंदी में निबंध

मुझे सर्दियों की छुट्टी बहुत पसंद है, यह साल का वह समय है जब वातावरण बहुत सुखद होता है| इस वर्ष की सर्दियों की छुट्टी मेरे लिए बहुत खास थी, मैंने इस छुट्टी में बहुत अच्छी और नयीं चीज़े सिंखी|

मेरे माता-पिता ने महाराष्ट्र के कोंकण भाग की दो दिन की यात्रा की योजना बनाई थी| यह मेरे घर से बहुत दूर नहीं है, लेकिन में इस क्षेत्र में पहले कभी भी गया नहीं था। मेरा पिता हमेशा छत्रपति शिवाजी महाराज के शौर्य और किलों के बारे में बात करते हैं, उन्होंने बहोत सारे ऐतिहासिक जगहे देखी है और उनपे अध्ययन भी किया है| वह मुझे इस सुनहरे इतिहास की झलक दिखाना चाहते थे इसलिए उन्होंने कोंकण क्षेत्र में किलों का दौरा करने की योजना बनाई थी। पहले तो मुझे ज्यादा रूचि नहीं थी, पर अब में बहुत खुश हूँ की में उस ट्रिप पर गया|

हमने पुणे से अपना घर छोड़ा और घर से १५० किलोमीटर दूर प्रतापगढ़ किले का दौरा किया। इससे पहले, हमने महाबलेश्वर के पर्यटन स्थलोंका का आनंद लिया। मुझे आर्थर सीट और एलफिन्स्टन पॉइंट बहुत पसंद आयें|

हमने प्रतापगढ़ किले के लगभग ५०० सिढीयोंके चढ़ाई का आनंद लिया। सर्दियों के मौसम की सबसे अच्छी बात है की हम इस मौसम में हम आसानी से थकते नहीं। हमने शिवाजी महाराज की विशाल प्रतिमा को देखा, गाइड ने हमें इस जगह का इतिहास बताया। उन्होंने हमें बताया कि कैसे बहादुर शिवाजी महाराज ने अफजल खान का वध किया और जनता को उसके कहर से बचाया| हमने अफज़ल खान की समाधी भी देखी। किले में स्थित भवानी माता के आशीर्वाद लेके हम लोग निचे उतरे|

थोडीही दूर हमें हस्तकला की एक बड़ी प्रदर्शनी देखी| वहां पे देश के कोने-कोने से लायी, अचंभित करने वाली चीज़े देखी| हमारे भारत के शिल्पकार, कारीगर इतने प्रतिभाशाली हे इसका मुझे अंदाज़ा नहीं था| मैंने उस प्रदर्शनी में १ घंटेसे ज्यादा वक्त बिताया, प्रदर्शनी के स्वयंसेवकोने मुझे बहुत जानकारी दी| हमने वहांसे कुछ चीज़ें भी खरीदी|

अब तक शाम हो गयी थी, हम वहांसे घाट उतरकर महाड पोहंचे। उस शाम हमने होटल में आराम किया| अगले दिन सुबह हमने एक और ऐतिहासिक स्थल की यात्रा की।यह वहीं महाड शहर है जहाँ डॉ. बाबासाहेब अंबडेकर ने “महाड सत्याग्रह” किया था| २० मार्च १९२७ को बाबासाहब के अगुवाई में महाड के “चवदार तले” पर पानी का सत्याग्रह हुआ था, यह भारत के इतिहास की एक महत्वपूर्ण घटना है| वहां से थोडीही दूर “क्रांतिभूमि” के दर्शन किये और हालही में बने डॉ. बाबासाहेब अंबडेकर म्यूजियम की भी भेट ली|

अब तक ११ बज चुकें थे, हम फिर आगे रायगढ़ किले की तरफ रवाना हुए| रायगढ़ किला महाड से कुछ ३० किलोमीटर पर है| इस बार किले पर पैदल चढ़ने की जगह हमने केबल कार का अनुभव लेनेका निर्णय लिया| हम २० मिनट में किले पर थे| वहां पे गाइड ने हमें शिवकालीन इतिहास बताया| उनोन्हे उस काल की प्रगत समाज और अर्थ प्रणाली, सार्वजनिक सुविधाएं, बाजार के बारे में बताया| यह सारी चीज़े मैंने किसीभी पाठ्यपुस्तक में नहीं पढ़ी|

थोड़ी देर मनन करनेके बाद मुझे समझ आया की मेरे पिता ने मुझे इस ट्रिप पे क्यों लाया| हमें, आजकी की पीढ़ी को भारत के इतिहास के बारेमे नहीं के बराबर पता है| तब मैंने ठान ली की में छत्रपति शिवाजी महाराज, डॉ. बाबासाहेब अंबडेकर और हमारे ऐतिहासिक महानुभाओंका और हमारे इतिहास का अध्ययन करूंगा|

मैंने अपने माता पिता का बहुत धन्यवाद किया, उनकी वजह से मैंने इस छुट्टी में इतनी सारी चीज़ें सीखी| एक तरह से मेरा नज़रियाँ ही बदल गया| मैं इस यात्रा से मैंने बहुत कुछ सीखा और परिवार के साथ भी एक अच्छा समय बिताने का मौका मिला।

हमें अपनी गर्मी और सर्दी की छुट्टियों का लाभ लेना चाहिए और विभिन्न स्थानों पर जाना चाहिए। वीडियो गेम्स, मोबाइल पर समय जाया करने के बजाए, हमें वास्तविक दुनिया के अनुभव प्राप्त करने चाहिए।
