cuti pie

My cutie pie he is no longer there however this photo of his will always make me feel he is just there looking straight at me,sitting on the veranda in darjeeling,basking in the sun.Anytime i look at this picture,it makes me smile.

My life

The welcome addition to my life my husband and a lovely friend renju.

Next year

How to welcome 2009?

In the month of january will be visiting Varanashi for three days,kind of weekend break.
April looks quite good either a trip to the State of Jammu and Kashmir or to Nepal not sure which one.
Both the option is out so now i am planning for Gochela trek in April...
rest will depend on how many leaves will I have to travel ha ha....just keeping my fingers crossed..........


I was trying to take a picture of these little Lamas however as soon as i lift up the camera they would run.......however at this place where i am standing there is a small stupa kind of structure where people throw coins and get their wishes fulfilled....so while i was trying my luck i got alot of audience.....that is how i cought the little guys on camera........ha ha fooled them.....


This years travel,completed Varanasi,mussorie and chakrata.

This is the same monastry where the mandala art was being made....awsome painting........
