राइगढ़ किला – एकान्त

  Epic Channel के एकान्त के नए episode में रायगढ़ किले का दौरा हुआ। रायगढ़ का नाम सुनते ही बचपन में सुने छत्रपति शिवाजी महाराज की कहानियाँ याद आ गयीं। रायगढ़ मराठाओं का राजधानी था, ये तो पता था, मगर क्यों ये अब पता चला। रायगढ़ का किला ऐसी ऊंची पहाड़ी की चोटी पर बना था, जहाँ तीनों तरफ गहरी खायी थी और आने जाने का सिर्फ एक ही रास्ता था। सुरक्षा की व्यवस्था काफी चतुराई से की जाती थी।…

A Song of Ice and Fire

The name of the series sounds poetic, doesn’t it? Do not get fooled by the sweet sounding name.

It is also unpredictable, exciting and downright immersive. As HBO’s immensely popular Game Of Thrones series Season 5 premiered yesterday I thought it is perfect time to mull…
