Rocky and Mayur are on their way to Chail, the Maharaja of Patiala's summer capital.

|Seldom on HOMP have we been to a place as dramatic as Patal Bhuvaneshwar: Rocky|
We’ve always enjoyed this show, a lot, but seldom have we been to a place as dramatic as Patal Bhuvaneshwar. Somewhere in Pithoragarh this is a place I first went to a few years ago and this time when we went to the district I just had to get a camera into the Holy Cave system. This is a place that defies description and you will just have to see it for yourselves, as words will never do it justice.
| Something about the air in Punjab|
There is something about the air in Punjab that is different. The fields seem greener, the skies seem bluer and the people smile so much more than they do anywhere else. In fact if you want to compete at anything anytime you will find any number of people to do it with in the land of the five rivers.
| Fat is where its at|
There is a fat person lurking in us all and when you eat on the highway like we do, that fat person bursts out with abandon. Between the two of us (Rocky and Mayur) we have gained 45 pounds or 20 kilos since we started shooting for ‘Highway on My Plate’.

Rocky and Mayur are making a mad dash into the mountains and they are taking you along! In the new season of HOMP our intrepid food guides make their way through some of India’s highest mountain roads and other not so “high”-ways to experience life in these charming hills. From the Himalayas in the North to the Nilgiri Hills in the South and all the ranges in between, they try out the best mountain cuisine – from traditional dhaba food to home cooked meals and to those influenced by the many foreign settlers here. Watch Highway On My Plate - Hills for more food adventures, fun facts and of course, tucked away places you never knew existed!
Highway on My Plate is back on the road, and it’s by the sea. Rocky and Mayur decide to comb the coastline of India that is rich in more that just food. Fishing villages, trawlers, fish markets, plantations, stunning highways that are kissed by swelling waves and all along the way people of India that make every journey of Rocky and Mayur worth undertaking. Our highway explorers will thumb rides, punt lifts and hustle free meals as they make friends, sing, dance and eat their way from Gujarat to Bengal along the Indian peninsula. There is sea food in plenty but also herbs and spices and plants and fruit that will make sure Mayur does not feel left out and neither do our veggie viewers. Come and share the excitement of some places that come highly recommended and some that will be discovered along the way because that’s what explorers do.
Food in schools and canteens has a special quality that you never forget. Anyone been to a boarding school will recall with nostalgia the smell in their dining rooms. The taste of the cutlets or chola bhatoora of your college canteen will be etched onto your tongue. Food has that ability of forming memories that define a phase in your life.
Rocky and Mayur hit the road again exploring canteens and dining rooms that have fed thousands over the years and formed memories. All such cities have some favourite hangouts too – Addas where young students and vellas meet and hang out for the pakoda, samosa, snack or meal. We rediscover canteens, dining halls, cafeterias and addas from around the country that have fed the Indians in their growing and formative years to make them the men and women they are today. Rocky and Mayur make up for the lost time now. If there is one good reason to go back to school or college, it is food.
Mayur is based out of Delhi and the 'out of Delhi' is so true. He is an outdoor experiential educator and works with children and corporate clients in developing interpersonal relationships and productive group dynamics. An avid traveller Mayur has lived, worked, played, backpacked his way across over 60 countries in the past decade before returning home to the best food in the world. A keen sportsman he plays squash and enjoys rock climbing and high altitude trekking. Mayur has climbed Kilimanjaro and survived an unexpected swim in the Tsunami of 2004 but finds the adventures on the highways of India just as exciting.
