As my 7 year old says: "Uncle Ishie is insane!" There is no better qualification for living the life he lives and writing this blog. Iswar's running and writing has opened up a window into a whole new world for many of us. Keep on running and keep on blogging!!

I have become an avid armchair traveler through Ishwar's blog. Wonderful pictures, observations and historic content all seasoned with a "just right" measure of humor.

The common thread that weaves the travelogue bouquet of Ishwar appears to be food,beverages and beauty-,hence his nomadic existence.When you combine the Bauls of Bengal,the Roma of Europe, the gypsies.hippies and nomads of the Arab diaspora,Ishwar the international rodent--quietly pierces all security and barriers in order to nibble at each and every goodie that life offers on this planet. His blogs are revealing,new,refreshing and always present a new line of vision. Keep on keeping on O! wandering minstrel of epicurean delights.
