Evening at the Ancient Lake

The name of the lake which I called the ancient in this photograph is the “Nakki Lake“. Nakki Lake is situated in the famous hill station of Mount Abu in Rajasthan. I have captured this photo at Nakki lake in the evening. The Nakki lake is about a half mile in length and is about of a quarter of a mile in width and twenty to thirty in deep. It is also known as large man-made lake which is situated at the height of 11,000 meters (36090 Feet) in India.

The interesting thing about the name of it is that it was dug by the Nails (Nakh). There are two interesting stories behind it. One of them is that It was dug by the gods to live in, for protection against the Bashkali demon and the second story is of Rasiya Balam (Click to Know more about Rasiya Balam), who dug the lake. The king said that whoever will dig the lake within one night. I will marry my daughter to him. But the later king’s wife refused and he couldn’t marry the king’s daughter. Rasiya Balam and Kunwari Kanya (the daughter of king)’s temple is at behind the Dilwara Jain temple.

After boating at Nakki Lake, we enjoyed the evening and also enjoyed the ice-cream. I also shared one post named “Sweet Chocolate Chips Ice Cream Cone (Click to See)“.

  1. Hello Ravi,
    You’ve such a wonderful perspective and ‘focus’ on life and love as we know it. Would you be amenable to reading and reviewing a collection of short stories? Author Sharat Kumar has a collection of short stories coming out this time in January. In each of the 13 stories, uncovers the New Age woman and the chemistry between men and women in contemporary India. Whether spinning a yarn about an Army romance, or the affection between two divorcees; Kumar holds a mirror to how sparks fly.
    If you’re interested, I’d love to provide a PDF of the upcoming book to be reviewed in your particular fun, free and fearless way. Just ping me back at the email address hritvick.dv(@)gmail dot com.

    Cheers, and keep clicking/blogging.
