Autumn in a hill station

Rinku came home after an eventful day at school, she often started her day at the crack of the dawn. While everybody at home cuddled in heavy blankets, she hurried to the washroom to spruce up.

Happy Independence Day, India! I am, ME, because of you! You gave me a name and an image! No matter, where I live in this world, I can never forget my roots.

Sunset Point Park at Collingwood

Chasing the sunsets! How many of you like watching sunrise or sunsets? I’m an ardent fan of nature, nature lover since birth but I’ve started adoring sunsets since past 3 years. I have had a chance to experience a few sunrises also but mostly sunsets. It keeps me some kind of peace and feeds my…
