Door ek gaon hai,

Wahan thandi chaon hai,

Behti nadiya hai,

Jana hai nadiya ke paar…

  1. I miss this MOna! you refreshed my memories! I miss the Trishul! the snow peaked himalayas! the ranges, the cheed ke ped, ka phal, bal mithai, walking on the lanes,slipping thru those jungles full of scatterd dried fir leaves…still looks awesome,,every place of kumaon and grahwal


    • Well i miss those things too…its been 2 years since i last went to Pithoragarh. These are old pics, but yes i am closer to the place than you. We can never forget the things you have mentioned here, bal mithai, cheed k ped, running through the valleys, those were wonderful days, beautiful moments. I had a lovely childhood in our kumaon, the life i had, oh i can never forget that.I’ve many pictures, i’ll keep posting them, of all the things you’ve written about, that’s a promise. 🙂 That’s the only thing i can do.


      • and that will be much pleasure to me! i have all the old photos at mom’splace,so when I go next there i will surely scan and post them ..my college days in kumaon!


      • yes dear! I have lots of them from Ranikhet, even from Binsar,kausani,chaukhutia..I went to almost all the places b4 we left ranikhet,nainital,kainchi…. actually I even took my husband and kid there for a vaction few years back to show them all the ones ,my college .


  2. What a beautiful landscape ..thanks for sharing these pictures from several thousand miles away from here. I wonder if you ever have snow? We’re almost drowning in it right now 😉

    Greetings from Germany, Ocean


    • The last pic has snow… but it doesn’t snow so heavily here as at your place. Only the himalayan ranges get enormous amount of snow, as for the town, the amount is really less.Loved your pictures of the snow, i wish to witness something like that someday. 🙂
      Have a great day ahead… cheers.


  3. rapturous photos. i came to your site because of the beautiful haiku you wrote at all about lemon. an inner wonder woman resides within me. thanks for helping me remember that.


  4. You live in such a beautiful place. I wish I was staying somewhere in the Himalayan ranges.All my tours and now these amazing pictures here really makes me wanna visit the mountains soon enough. 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂


    • Ah…how I wish I lived there. It is my home but destiny didn’t let me stay there. I have been away from home for more than a decade now. It is just these pictures that make me feel like a part of home is still alive in me somewhere. 🙂
      Thank you for visiting my blog and for all the lovely comments. It means a lot. 🙂
