Hello there. Been some time since I was here. I made a short trip to McLeodgunj, Dharamkot, Chamba and Khajjiar, hill stations in the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh. Splendidly surrounded by hills, streams, lakes, variety of trees, buddhist monks etc. Clicked some pictures from the hotel and on my way to these places.
Sharing some pictures from my recent visit to Nagaland, a state in India.
The pain of Deciduous, with the winter setting in, was growing deep. This was its first winter since it stepped into adulthood. It had been shedding cherries, flowers, and leaves, here and there, all through its adolescence and in a way has been aware of their seasonal departure. This winter, however, it was losing them at a tremendous rate and volume, so it thought. It didn’t know what was wrong but was certain that something was. It had been nourishing its kin too well. It spread its roots into every possible inch of the rock and far into the soil to pull water and food for all its beloved. So much and more only to find them part this way.

Socially and morally rewarding?
