Volkenroder- Connecting dreams

Dreams have connections deep within and the joy comes from the art of connecting the dots. I was probably 4-5 years old lying on my mother’s lap looking at the stars outside our home when my mother told me- “Look! There’s a star moving”. Blinking red,green..it kept on moving and I couldn’t understand why this…

Monsoon stations

The more you see, the more you want to see! Charming people, sweet smell of tea and tea gardens;hills going on and on and on and a gaze across your surrounding coming to standstill. That’s what the upper hill stations of West Bengal got for you. I have been waiting to get some holidays from…

The Nothing

When I look back to it from now, it was nothing special. Just one death among others. Seven billion people live on this planet and all of them will face death one day or the other. All those who will come after us will die too and many before us already did. Death is inevitable….
