A Diary. May 7, 2010. 1122 Hours. [Explored]

Again back to Darjeeling. I took this photo when I was visiting Darjeeling Zoo. I liked that place. It was really beautiful. Sometimes clouds were passing through me. It was amazing. Clouds are actually warm. I didn’t know that. I thought it will be cold or something.

  

One more thing. My grandfather was a Jamidar during British colonial period. My grandmother told me he wasn’t like regular Jamidar. He liked to sing all the time and he also had the hobby to take photos. I think I got it from him. We still have the plates (I don’t know what they are actually called) which he used to positive his images with chemicals. He used to spend summer time in Darjeeling. He spent most of his summer there. So when I visited Darjeeling I had a strange feeling. I felt, may be my grandfather walked in the same street where I’m walking now. May be he enjoyed it as much as I did. Sadly he died long before I was born. All my Darjeeling photographs are dedicated to him.

 

Edit: I didn't know that this photo was EXPLORED on 23 July. I just knew it today on 28 July. Thanks
