Break from daily routines- off to a hill station

07 May

Hey friends, readers, everybody-

Summer is on. As the mercury is soaring upwards, we can feel the presence of summer. After few days we may feel the warmth of Global Warming. Kolkata weather in summer is very much uncomfortable due to heat and humidity. In the scorching heat of summer in May, even thinking of a hill station gives some relief in our mind. But being at a hill station, is nothing like that.

This summer, we will be off from 09th May for an outing in the lap of hill stations like Nainital, Ranikhet, Almora, Kosauni to get some relief from scorching heat, tiring office activities and all monotonous routines. The place “Ranikhet” is beautifully named. Its meaning in English is “Queen’s meadow”. May be, in the past, a queen stayed there or visited that place during summer. It is a hill station and cantonment town in the Indian State of Uttarakhand.

It is learnt that Ranikhet is extremely cold in the winter season and is moderate in summer. Ranikhet even gets snowfall in the winter season, mainly in the months of December, January and February. For few days we be with nature forgetting the heat, dust & fumes of the city and be back with memories and lot of photographs.

On my return, I will share the photographs of the above places with you all. My compact Sony digicam hopefully won’t disappoint you.

Till then bye, Take care

    Heat and humidity makes the place so unbearable…you’ll always feel sticky and wet on your skin, and some people may find it difficult to breathe. Anyways, thanks for sharing the photos, and it’s been a good read.

    I like what you said “Life is a journey through sunshine and shadow, ups and downs and this colorful and eventful journey makes us prudent”.
