Benares, Bareilly, and Bikaner

Like to travel to different places in India? Also enjoy old Hindi film songs? Then this is just the thing for...

Anuradha Goyal is the author of 'The Mouse Charmers - Digital Pioneers of India' and a travel blogger for over a decade.
I am an ardent fan of Old Indian Film songs , and I owe it to my growing up in the Doordarshan era. Today when I look at my favourite songs on YouTube, I see the iconic locations as they were 40,50 or 60 years ago.

All remarkably, frighteningly fragile.
 Here’s something to whet your appetite, should that be necessary. ;-)
