Walk and Walk: Ziro Series #one

Ziro is known to be one of the oldest towns in Arunachal Pradesh, which is also the home for the Apatani people. Besides the mountains, rice farms and orchards, Arunachal has an ample number of helipads. This is one of them.

My friend says this is probably the only helipad in Ziro, which I guess is true and which is why the helipad usually becomes a football ground for most of the kids out there. Then with preferences, the football field would also temporarily turn into a cycling track or a grazing field for a lonely cow.

We preferred strolling and looking at the mountains.


Don’t Get Hit By a Rocket

Well, this Diwali, we decided to walk on the streets of the city and watch the fireworks. Fun.

It somewhat turned out to be a good idea. We almost got hit by a rocket. Missed me by few inches. Fun.

[Incase you are wondering what Diwali is, check here. Incase you already know, I hope that I put up more photographs later. Soon. Fun.]

Besides, wishing all, Happy Fireworks.

Fog People

Shot at Shillong on a summer day. It was full of clouds and fog and very few people. Here are the photographs of the few people I came across.

An enthusiastic kid, my friends, a self portrait and a couple walking away.


Why Did The Elephant Fall?

“This is Cherrapunji and this is where the elephant fell.”

“And my friend was still trying to figure out how did the elephant fall.”


In a Beautiful Country Out There


This place comes somewhere on the road that goes to Cherrapunji from Shillong. It was as quiet as a cemetery and as beautiful as a dream. Then there were three of us and that somebody under the ground.

Nevermind, the expression! We all got a little over excited.
