Summers mean vacations.
Vacations mean holiday trips.
So, this summer, Rediff.com's Ashish Narsale gathered up his family to visit the beautiful state of Himachal Pradesh.
What memories did they come back with?
Take a look:

As the icy breeze welcomed them, Shubhda Narsale bid goodbye to summer's sweltering heat.
At least until she reached Mumbai again.

Payal Narsale is seen enjoying a pink one at the St John In The Wilderness Church at Dharamshala.

Nilesh Mahajani even posed like a vendor.

Fun fact: Did you know Khajjiar is known as the mini-Switzerland of India?
