I'm loving this thread. Off to India and though not traveling much, I have bought myself a Sony DSC-RX100 for the trip, and so far I'm loving the camera. I keep wondering if I should take a tripod with me or not. Any recommendation on light traveling tripod? I keep going back to Velbon CX-Mini tripod, but it only extends to 63mm.
Idle mind is a Devil's workshop.

@Saptarshi
I had to ditch the tripod a few times in Varanasi (ghats from rowing boat) and had to rely on a high ISO to help maintain a fast shutter speed to avoid motion blur. Didn't always work though and most of the photos taken were pretty grim anyway - partially my fault for not having enough experience at this type of thing I guess.
I also wanted to try to take a few of those pictures you said you liked by Shaktipalooza (2nd last one) but maybe the candle light in my boat wasn't strong enough?
Heres a couple from me - no tripod & tripod..
