In Ahmedabad for a day to take pictures of the International Kite Festival, Paramita Haldar, who loves more than anything else to capture moments with her camera, shares some pictures and details of all the delicious food she ate

The pocket pinch is only ₹ 25-30 .Typical Rajasthani kachori has an extra chena ( cottage cheese) item which is missing in other parts of the country.
