  1. Wow, Goutam you’ve captured the excitement of seeing the Eiffel Tower for the first time. I haven’t had the pleasure of this experience. Thanks for joining in with this beautiful post.

    1. It was quite a shock to me as I hadn’t seen anything like that in India prior to that incident. That, incidentally, was my first overseas trip as well and so I was a little cautious, nervous, while trying to absorb all the new things at the same time. 😊

      1. My first visit was a short one- 2 meetings and then i flew out. But i have been to Paris 3 times after that; in fact I holidayed there in 2019 with my wife and daughter, just before the pandemic stopped all travel. We certainly did have a great holiday, enjoying the sights and sounds of Paris. 🙂

    1. Yes….That is one of the ways of the lesser privileged ones to seek for some charity/alms. These guys will paint and decorate themselves and then stand immobile at any particular point. Then when someone gets attracted by them and comes close, they would ask for some alms. I have observed them during my later visits to stand perfectly still for hours together at any given place; an amazing skill indeed. 🙂
