Back with memories & photographs

Kausani Copyright M. Anil 2008

Hi folks,

I am back from my holidays but bit tired. You may explore my new page “Incredible India” above wherein you will find some photographs and texts about the places visited. Best things deserve best places, thats what made me to introduce a new page to post the best pictures which will remain always accessible and will never be lost in the midst of posts. Above picture shows the Kumaon hills from Kausani. Kausani is a beautiful hill station which is known as the “Switzerland of India”. Kausani commands an unobstructed view of Himalayas. Its situated at a height of 1890 meters.

If you look carefully to the picture above, the Himalayan peaks “Trishul”, “Panchachulli” or Panchachouli etc are visible behind the Kumayun hills. There is a story in favour of the name “Panchachulli”. As per epic Mahabharata, Droupadi, wife of pancha Pandavas cooked food for five brothers in five separate ovens (chulli). Those marks of five ovens are still visible on the Himalaya and have been named as “Panchachulli”.

Kausani SunriseCopyright M Anil 2008

The sun is trying to come out from the clouds above and at the same time the thickly dense clouds covered the entire valley which looks like a lake turned ice.

Like a Fairy Tale

Once upon a time there was a princess. She was in love with a poor boy who was living on the other bank of the river. The royal family did not approve such unequal love affairs but they could not be separated. Ultimately she was under house arrest. But all the security men were very kind to her. One night, with all risks, they opened the door and made her free. She was having a obedient horse. She called her and sat on her back and ordered to run. The horse vanished from the palace within seconds. The horse was driven through the dense forests, rocks and finally a river. The obedient horse did not mind to jump into the river to cross it to take her mistress’s destination- the other bank of the river where princess’s dream man stay. Now look at the picture, the princess is in her halfway to cross the river.

The rest of the story will be written once the princess crosses the river and meet her dream “prince”.

Till then we have to wait and pray for a fairy tale ending ——– “married and lived happily ever after”.

Note : The story presented above is based on my imagination, inspired by the above photograph.

( In reality : A bride crosses a lake as she rides a horse during a set of photo shoot in Shidu, near Beijing, China. A company is running group tours to the area for the soon-to-be-married couples in a spectacular settings. Acknowledments : Times of India).
