A Delightful Boat Tour In A Rainy Weather On River Dell, Wisconsin Dells

The scenic beauty of Wisconsin Dells with the sandstone cliffs, beautiful rock formations and the Upper and Lower Dell Rivers flowing in between, is a real feast to the eyes of the nature-lovers.
Wisconsin Dells is one of the most popular water parks in the mid-west region of the U.S. It is famous as Water Park Capital of the World.

Wisconsin Dells is a cool city in Wisconsin state in the mid-west region and is a popular tourist attraction.

Actually, I was not interested in summer splashes. But on reaching the cool city, being a nature-lover I was very much attracted by the fantastic scenic beauty of Wisconsin Dells.

First we went on a thrilling amphibious army duck tour in the Dell river and then a delightful boat tour in the Lower Dells. Though it was summer, suddenly the weather turned cloudy on reaching the Lower Boat Dock. My joy knew no bounds as I love getting drenched in the summer rains.

There were few visitors on board. The tour started at the scheduled time, so far to my remembrance it was evening around 5.30 or so. As the boat dashed into the river waters, it started drizzling and I was awed to see Mother Nature at Her best.
I just lost myself for a while in the nature. The stratified sandstone on either side, cloudy weather with drizzle, greenery on either side. OMG! it's so beautiful.
It was a wonderful ride and am sure nature-lovers are sure to enjoy it. The ride was much delightful for me than the summer splashes in the water parks.
Somehow, I enjoyed this boat ride more than the Hudson River cruise where you can enjoy the man-made wonders i.e tall building / skyscrapers in the shoreline. But in Dells Boat tour, you'll be awed by the wonderful scenic beauty of nature.

You feel so relaxed as the boat navigates. The beauty of the rock formations is worth seeing.
The boat ride in a cloudy summer evening in Dells river, getting drenched in the drizzle was a real delightful one. Those living in the mid-west region can easily drive to Wisconsin Dells and enjoy the scenic beauty of the place.

Traditional Telugu Wedding

"Dharmecha, ardhecha, kamecha, nati charitavyeti, data vadet, nati charatavya - Nati Charami"
"Mangalyam tantunanena mama jeevana hetuna, kanthe badhnami subhage tvam jeeva sarada satam"


These are the two most important chanting in Indian Hindu weddings.

Wedding (Vivah / Vivaham in Sanskrit), is a highly sacred event in Hindu culture. It is a life long commitment between a man and a woman. Vivaham is one of the 16 samskaras. Brahmacharya (youth) of a man ends with marriage and his Grihastasramam (family life) begins.

Hindu weddings involve various ceremonial / procedural events which are almost similar in all regions with slight variations. The events take place in the form of prayers, invocations and vows that are recited in Sanskrit. The prayers are power-packed with in-depth meaning and describe the strong bondage between husband and wife who are united in the presence of Panch Bhoota i.e the five elements of Earth, in a ritualistic manner.
