Happy Deepavali!

It's that time again....
trees look depressed
birds get tensed
dogs are scared
cats are not seen
air turns dark
clouds are on fire
silence gets broken

Let's make it safe... for all!
Happy Deepavali!

Wider scapes of Meruti!

A long journey started some years ago, came to a beautiful end this time. Thanks to all the beautiful people around and a bit of luck on my part to witness the magic! Here are some panoramic photographs from Meruti and around.

Altitude of the peak is around 1600m and one can see Kalasa to the South, Billal Koppa to the north, And Neral Katte, Bikarana Katte and Basri Katte to the North East.

Those pink wild flowers are orchids - Satyrium nepalense 

Peak was always hidden in the clouds

Cloud play - open on one side and closed on the other
