Apology. (an open letter)

Dear followers,
Some 350 of you may hav recieved 3 emails that said it was a newsletter from this blog, but actually was blank.

This happened mistakenly by me, and to some extent the browser was acting faulty at that time.. :(.

I can only say sorry at the incident, and do nothing more...
I understand that precious moments in your life was wasted by those three emails.. and i promise that in the future, it won't be happening from my side.

Apologies again,
Dan.

approaching fall

finally, photographed it.
finally, photographed it

i've been looking to take a photo of this tree ever since i spotted it on way to college. but presence of people, bad weather, etc kept me from doing so.

i didn't take time to focus on the subject, nor did pause much while walking, just trusted the positioning of hand to take this.
Taking photos like this with anything less than a dslr feels very embarrassing to me.

Took another photo too, only of the tree.... But this makes more sense!

enthralled en route

i said i wud give detailed travel info on my earlier post, but as no one cares about that, i wont. if u want, let me know in the comments section.
just wanna say that a train journey in the NJP-Alipurduar route is pretty enthralling. if one has heard of the hill-station Darjeeling, they would know that to go there by train, the major train station is NJP. So if u ever decide to visit Darjeeling, i would recommend u make plans for a train journey in this route. Also, at the end of this train route, there are places like Jaldapara Wildlife Sanctuary to visit.

apart from what u see in these photos, there are two tunnels of moderate length, and while the train passes through these tunnels, the entire compartment is darkened!
There are tea plantations at a short distance from the railway tracks..
There are dense forests, and of course all that u see here..

i hav never taken the entire train journey end-to-end, heck i can't even recall having visited Alipurduar as a teen... but i remember having visited the wildlife sanctuary as a kid..

reminiscences apart, the things which are must for a journey in this route are-
  • u ought to board a train before 8am from NJP to enjoy the beauty of the area at the fullest
  • u gotta take a seat on the left side, coz that side is filled with more spectacular landscapes.
  • u MAY hav to travel in non-AC compartments
  • on a more general note, always be clear about ur travel plans
more info:
any questions? ask me!

Enough talkin!, now the photos-!!
