Guide to Categories

Here's a quick guide to my attempt at categorizing the posts on the site (it seemed time to finally hold myself accountable to the description on the banner). At the end of the day, you might not totally agree with my definitions or categorizations. That's fine, we're all entitled to our opinion. If you really want to read about a specific topic, feel free to use the "Labels" or do some sort of search.

These posts read like more typical journal entries and outline some random thing we did or experienced within the National Capital Region (i.e., NCR or "Delhi"). Why the limitation on geography? Because I made the mistake of separating out "adventures" and "travels".

Fairly self explanatory but these posts are related to anything written about planning or experiencing travel outside of Delhi (including any time spent outside India). It's true that "travel" posts will invariably be filled with the other four categories; however, that's just the way it is.

Here's where it starts to get tricky, and my cute little banner description gets me in trouble as the term "observation" is incredibly generic. For purposes of categorization, I'm considering it anything that is basically rooted in generally accepted fact that I feel like I'm just passing along. Of course, based on my own personal biases, it's entirely possible that what you might consider a perception, I'd consider an observation. Moving on.

Perceptions, for these purposes, are like observations but contain a higher level of personal opinion that I feel have a strong possibility of having some truth behind. Through these posts you'll gain some insight into my attitude toward India at that given point in time for both the better and the worse. Within this category you'll likely determine whether or not you like me. I'm fine with that.

At times, I may find my observations and perceptions to be incorrect. On those rare occasions or when I'm completely surprised by something (which, if you've been here for a while, can take a significant event), I'm considering it a misconception.

As you can tell, there really is no rhyme or reason, especially to the last three categories; however, hopefully that doesn't impede your reading enjoyment.
