I had completely forgotten to post this pic – one that I like the most! Its sunset view at Fort Aguada, Goa overlooking the Arabian Sea. It was a heavenly view. At the moment reflecting back on that very moment and trying to feel the celestial bliss as I sip my cup of Darjeeling Tea back home. Enjoy the photo!!

This is one photo I like. Its “The Gateway of India”, Mumbai, at a very close vicinity from the hotel where we were staying. In fact as soon as we stepped out of the hotel, we got the view of the Gateway of India. I had taken this shot while walking some distance from the hotel as well as the Gateway of India in an attempt to capture the waterfront as well.
It was during the night and I had no tripod with me, so as a result, I had to stable it on one of the railings – Hope you like it!
After 6 decades of working under the Constitution framed and adopted in 1950, today, India celebrates its 61st Republic Day! Happy Republic Day! As Mahatma Gandhi had said, when the power comes, it shall be vested in the hands of the people – we hope that all leaders know its true value and divert towards making a greater India keeping in mind the integrity and prosperity of the nation. Same goes to all of us – let us prove ourselves good citizens!
Today we will be going on a staff picnic and a huge Indian flag has been mounted on the vehicle. The picnic spot will be on the banks of river Teesta. Guess what, we will be cooking there on a huge fire built on three stones (historic hehe) and the fuel will be branches, twigs and stuffs like that – kinda camping, but we call it picnic. The other thing is everyone has carried a flask of their own – everyones so addicted with the tea thing.
We will be on a picnic way down to river Teesta, but will definitely be drinking our share of Darjeeling Tea the whole day.
We will be celebrating India’s Republic Day along with a cup of Darjeeling Tea!
Happy Republic Day!
Keep Sipping Tea!!
Welcome to my personal space on the web. Hi! This is Benoy, a guy who resides among the Himalayan hills of Darjeeling. This is a personal blog where I update everything personal - from my wake up time to the time I fall dead on the bed. I love Darjeeling Tea and photography - Though an amateur photographer with zero knowledge of the technicalities involved, I like the idea of capturing the angle which best portrays to my eyes. Enjoy your stay here! +Benoy Thapa
