Peace….in a serene little Japanese garden..

Nothing can be more peaceful than spending some quiet time in a beautiful calm and serene settings of a Japanese forest with the sounds of a bell ringing in a Buddhist temple in this garden……….and if that can be found in your own home city rather than travelling all the way to Japan, then there’s…

Pictoral bliss….some moments…

A picture book….scraps of memories….a recent trip….November 2016 Himalayas…..the vastness of the region has so much to offer….most of the hill stations are in the Indian sub continent and some in Nepal and adjacent places……World’s first five highest peaks are in this region, with Everest as the mother of all…… Mountains attract me all the…
