The Classy Heaven



Quite often we notice examples of bench marking all around us. Standards exist in every sphere of life and they are pretty much used as reference points. Let’s say a college going guy, also let us consider that he use to play good cricket, but his batting style is quite defensive. His friends might say that he's their "Rahul Dravid". If any girl is extremely bold, fearless and could literally take on any damn person, people might say "she’s our Jhansi Ki Rani". Presently in Bollywood there’s some kind of a benchmark and nobody is anywhere near to him. Excuse me, it’s certainly not the so called King,  I am talking about Aamir Khan. 

During my school days, we used to have a few "Shakuntala Devi’s" among us. Reference points could be either local or global and people use then accordingly, depending upon the gravity of the situation. Few days back, I got to read a fabulous story "Bill gates of Small Town" by Saru. Well, there would be countless, similar kind of examples and people across the globe, literally use them quite often. People have set standards for tourist places as well. In fact, there are different reference points for different kind of places. For rain forests, Amazon is the classic benchmark and Switzerland is often used as a point of reference for some some of the exotic hill station across the world.

There are so many fascinating hill stations and each of them would certainly feel a glow of pride, whenever people use to compare them with the mother of all hill stations and usually refer them as say, "Switzerland of India, Switzerland of the East, etc" As I have never been to Switzerland, so I sometimes wonder "what’s so special about that place?" Well, we have our very own Ladakh, out here in India. But whenever I use to view Switzerland in one of those Travel channels, or whenever I have the opportunity to see it's photographs, I simply remain silent and wonder "how could there be a such a place on this planet?"

Many of my friends visited Switzerland and whenever they upload their Swiss photographs in social networking sites, I use to feel little jealous :), yet so mesmerizing. Next month, one of my friend is getting married and he already planned his Honeymoon in Switzerland.


Wow! Switzerland Honeymoonit would certainly be a dream come true for both of them and they could cherish the wonderful Swiss moments for their entire life.There's no doubt that Switzerland is the most hottest honeymoon destination.


The way tourism industry evolved globally over the last decade, gone are the days when Switzerland Tourism was considered only for the rich and the famous. In this pretty competitive market, travel giants like MakeMyTrip, usually come up with attractive packages year after year. Switzerland is quite an adventure tourist destination and MakeMyTrip have some exciting, as well as affordable and adventurous kind of Switzerland packages. Now a days, even the middle class people could very well experience the genuine heaven, it just require little bit of planning and determination.

Switzerland is one of my dream destinations. Let Jia grow up a bit and we would definitely visit this Classy Heaven one day.

  4. I didn't know that Switzerland was a favoured honeymoon destination for Indians. In Australia, most people go to Thailand or Bali for their honeymoon. I guess they want somewhere hot and tropical.

  12. We Indians are enamored by anything foreign. See them gobbling up heartattack-in-a-burger from mcdonalds that everyone everywhere is moving away from!
    Switzerland sure looks like a great place and even I want to go there once. But the Himalayas a gorgeous as well. I went there as a 13 yr old, and I still remember every sight vividly after more than 15 years! There are many pristine spots in India, but tourism needs to make them more available.

    1. Very correct Chaitanyavs, We enamored by anything foreign. Be it heartattack-in-a-burger from mcdonalds or KFC, although we already have hell lot of heartattack-in desi stuffs. Or be it Hollywood movies, in spite of having Bollywood. Himalayas is too gorgeous and exotic, it attracts tourists across the world. Don't forget the exotic North East. Yes, tourism needs to make them more available. But Swiss also look so fascinating :)

  16. Interesting one :) Your post reminds me of my visit to a place called 'Khajiar' in Himachal. I was surprised to know that it is called 'The Mini Switzerland of India'.They say that Khajiar is one of those locations in the world that bear topographical resemblance with Switzerland.Believe me it is beautiful indeed!

  20. I have lived in Switzerland for a year and after a while the beauty that I fell in love with in my initial days there appeared clinical. The trees, the snow and the sun rays all appear to be so well mannered and in their place compared to the wild beauty of the Himalayan ranges in India.

    1. You have an interesting ID :) U are extremely fortunate to live in the Heaven for a whole year. U are correct, the Himalayan ranges are very exotic and connectivity is not there every where. Also people turned some of the Himalayan ranges in hell. Thanks for visiting out here!
