When Roads become Destinations

I found a place in the midst of nature

And it a made a place within me

[Lake Mirik, on way to Darjeeling, near Siliguri]

The hills echo the greatness of my nation

As the breeze hums it's song

[Way to Nathu La Pass:Indo-China Border]

Give me a life away from the crowd

where all those I know

Know me


The clouds move wildly around me

The stones stand unperturbed

The souls captivated by the fragrance of mist

[Dello park,Kalimgpong]

Put all the colours you can think of together

You'll get all those you could not have thought of

[Rumtek Monastery, near Gangtok]

There's a serenity in life

And there's a life in serenity
[Rumtek Monastery, nearGangtok]

My trip to Darjeeling, Kalimpong and Gangtok was more than fulfilling. The camera could not capture even a percent of its beauty and the excitement induced can neither be shown nor told, only experienced.
