44. Kakching

I was in Kakching for official work.
On the way, I had a seen a beautiful hill.
After the work was completed I asked about the hill and was told that there is a garden on the hill.
We decided to visit the garden.
After visiting the Mahadeva Temple, we walked around.

The view of the valley was very beautiful.

It was peaceful and calm outside and it definitely influenced the state of our mind. We all became calm for a while.

I came across a small temple. The size of the temple was not a surprise but the God(s) in the temple came to me as a great surprise.

Nobody around was able to tell me the story of Crow Worship. I am still searching for it.

On the way, the view of Kakching town was also beautiful.

The visit was something like a dream.
A good dream.

43. Tea Stall

We were traveling from Amaravati to Nagpur. On the way we visited a small village.
One of the homes in the village offered us a cup of tea. However, we were running out of time, so declined the offer politely.
Then on the way the driver(s) of the car wanted to have a cup of tea.
So, we stopped at a roadside tea stall.

The tea was kept hot by using indirect heat.

And I like to have my tea in glass rather than in a cup.

Of course, the tea was good.
We moved forward feeling refreshed.
And I kept on thinking about the 'economics' of such tea stalls!

42. Night

I was in a small village in Bhind district, Madhya Pradesh.
We were sitting comfortably in an open space in front of a small house and chatting with the household members.
I saw him then.

"What is his age?" I asked.
"Hmm.. he is already in the night of his life," someone explained to me.

What a term!
Night of life!
And how true!!
