This is a photo taken during twilight or you may say dusk – a part of Darjeeling town. Darjeeling had been severely experiencing some extreme cold wintery type of weather conditions starting right after the Diwali festivals. The weather turned all foggy with chilly winds blowing and we had to tug ourselves into more of those woolies.
Autumn flush for Darjeeling Tea production was affected a bit due to cold weather prevalent – managers from some Darjeeling Tea plantations informed me that some sections of their plantation had totally stopped bearing tea leaves due to the cold weather which inhibits growth – this is the very reason why Darjeeling Tea production goes into some kind of hibernation during the winter months. The inhibition of tea growth is simply due to lack of sunlight which is much needed for the new shoots to sprout properly.
Anyways, tea lovers need not worry about the new 2011 Autumn Flush, I have already bought some and looking out for some more
At the moment its been about 3 days, the sun god seems happy and its dawning upon us and we are now able to dry up our frozen bones. But the winds blowing across seems to be freezing in nature.
Enjoy the photo!
