Ajmer Bungalow, home to the lovely Mrs Rajika Shukla and Mr Naveen Capoor. Its a typical British Bungalow, built in early 1908. Its a  beautiful home with shaded verandahs, lots of garden spaces, umpteen number of books arranged in corners, attention to each furniture and art item bought carefully and the love and care by the couple. The Bungalow itself has been carefully and lovingly maintained by the Capoors and their joy in the place is obvious.
 
 
We actually wanted to stay for a day before heading south. But on reaching it turned out to be a three day stop there. Naveen  a walking guide on Ajmer, made sure that that the trip was complete in all aspects.
 
 
I felt it was actually a home what I wished for..books and the wooden feel of the furnitures and numerous memorabilia and its memories all made up that warm and loving home of theirs...Each shot was a frame and pardon me, I found it difficult to choose which is the best and ended up uploading a lot of images this time...
