बनारस के रंग - Mystical. Musical. Mesmerising
In our continued effort to mix travel with elements of literature, this time we bring a travel plan to mystic city of Benaras - the fertile land that gave birth to legends like Kabir, Munshi Premchand, Bhartendu Harishchandra to name a few.. The history of a country is sometimes epitomised in the history of one of its principal cities. The city of Benaras seems to represents India - ancient, intellectual, spiritual, secular, a cultural and musical treasure trove. There are few cities in the world of greater antiquity than Banaras, truly epitomising the Indian ethos of "Atithi Devo Bhava," after all this ancient city, has always embraced a culture of intellectual debate, embraced the diversity of Hinduism, Islam, Bhakti and Sufism. It has welcomed with open arms mystics, artisans, musicians and people of all colour and race. And through this warm embrace, has also imbibed a diverse array of culture, music and cuisines. Delhi By Foot & Parwaz - परवाज़ invite you to that great city of "Kashi", a city located on the northern shores of the Holy Ganga, bounded by the streams of Varna and Asi, two Ganga tributaries forming the city's borders to experience one of our typical tours! Full of stories, insightful walking explorations, photography opportunities and of course lip-smacking foodie delights! We will experience the touch of Tulsidas's 'Ramcharitmanas' as we enjoy the world-famous 'Ramnagar Palace/Fort Ramleela.' We will listen to the soothing strains of 'Kabir's Dohas' at the same places where he used to stay and preach. We will "lose" ourselves in the warp & weft of the weavers, myriad anecdotes and an enchanting world of lost tales as we venture out in serpentine alleys, bazars and famed ghats of Varanasi. We shall "find" ourselves in the tranquility of Sarnath at the spot where Gautama Buddha first taught the 'Dhamma', after his enlightenment. And, most definitely, we will enjoy the culinary experiences of the DelhiByFoot...Adventures Unlimited!!! kind. A kaleidoscopic journey into the many layers of Varanasi awaits you! Are you game? DATES: Saturday, 29 Sept till Tuesday, 2nd Oct Limited seats, so shoot out a mail to get all details: [masked] or give us a buzz at[masked]

What we're about

We are a set of people passionate about poetry in all forms and shapes. We tend to instill poetry in everything in life. Remembering a verse or two when rain falls, finding rhyme and verses amidst mad rattling of business meetings and remembering chachaa ghalib’s line or two, suited for almost every occasion in life. We intend to share this madness with like-minded people, and at the same time, extend the ‘infection’ to some who are prone to it. We look forward to share the little that we feel and comprehend in poetry, and learn a lot more in the process. A poem gives you wings, takes you on a voyage, a parwaz, to an unexplored world at times, or providing a new perception of the known vistas at others. It can transport you back in time, to a different era altogether, or it can take you to a world where human feelings are same beyond all caste, color and boundaries.. And then some parwaz will make you soar high, sit on a skyscraper and see your world with a ‘bird eye view’, making it all suddenly look a lot more meaningful. At Parwaz, we share our poetic voyages with you and look forward to hearing your journeys via poems too.
