Mrs Krishna Shenoy

Day 422 since lockdown, May 23rd 2021 Today Corona struck home, as we lost our school teacher Mrs. Krishna Shenoy, she was our teacher in school, which we graduated from in 1990’s, and to this day ( saw her a month back) she kept in touch with us, her smiling face and open heart always welcomed us whenever we came to Jamshedpur, a cup of tea and chips and stories of good old days were always fun to listen to , we will miss her culinary skills of making spicy crabs, and trips to United club, the membership she kept alive to entertain her students more then herself. What a loss it is to all of us who knew her and were lucky to have known her, may she soul rest in peace, and may her blessings always be with us, Love you Teacher Please DM to purchase or license Images © Rajat Ghosh #backtonewnormalseries #canonindiaofficial #india #jampotblues #Krishnashenoy #traveldiary #water #instamood #bestoftheday #editorialphotography #birdbath #splash #rajatghoshphotography #rajatghoshfilm #love #biketaleswithrajat #travelphotography #environmentalportraits #photographyworkshop #RoyalEnfiled #balance #poise #moods #indiansummer #prayer

Golden fields

It is back bending work, even after the rice grain has been removed from the stalk, it is dried, then again washed, then boiled Then dried again Before it is ready to be sold ( consumed ) The daily chores to be done, the golden field to encourage one to do better, and hope for a good harvest, how much will it net, enough for the next production cycle to be paid for The childhood, spent amongst creating and growing food and art, what a rich childhood it is #backtonewnormalseries #canonindiaofficial #edenonearth #coexistance #summer #roadtrip #Playfields #childhood #instamood #bestoftheday #editorialphotography #rajatghoshphotography #rajatghoshfilm #editorialphotographer #biketaleswithrajat #india #ricefield #travelphotography #environmentalportraits #photographyworkshop

Coming down to the plains

This morning would see me heading for my farm 400 km away to AMINPUR Woke up at 0500 hours it was still dark, n there was no power, so instead of fidgeting in the dark slept another 30 minutes and finally by 0540 as the sky turned fair, was up an got ready head out I was out of the door by 0615. Early part of the morning would be cool, n then as I reached the plains I presumed it will be 10 am, n heat would hit me, as I was going to be clad in heavy clothing, oh well, I had a few extra bungee cords so I could shed and still do ok. The ride was comfortable and I trailed a police vehicle, thus making good time in the hills, I realized looking at the roads
It had been raining quiet heavily and had I started even 20 minutes earlier, I could have been hit by rain, well serendipity and riders luck was on my side mostly, and I had a smooth journey, I was soon approaching Islampur, which seemed to be a hub for Potato farming, 1000 of trucks were lined up as they picked up Potato for cold storage,
A few more hours of riding and I was treated to the lovely site of my Farm it was 1730 hours as I hit my farm and it is wheat season, the sun was setting over the field as I rode in, to put up my shoes for 5 days and spend time in the heat of the farm, it was 34 degrees centigrade, coming up from the hills which had been a cool 9 at the most over the last week.

Dhotrey today

19th well we did get to see Mt. K The early morning Red top of the mountain was was visible for 30 seconds , n my camera developed a attitude, i was forced to shoot with a wide lens( for the better)
Mukta claimed she had been to the Himalayas for the last 20yrs before she saw the sleeping buddha this day. What tenacity i say, while this was supposed to be one of the high points of this trip, I was quiet satisfied with the work I had been doing in the nights with the Moon , and was ready to leave this day for Dhotrey, I was missing my Motorbike and wanted to ride, we left at 1030 hrs for Dhotre, Shyam our guide was on time, we were not
We stopped on the way for a few pictures
and I finally was back on my bike and enjoyed the ride to Dhotrey with Mukta still being my Pillion.( this was the last stretch I would have a pillion, after this it was solo all the way back for 1000+ km home)
Dhotry was a small village again, and a lovely place as can be we did a few images this is red panda country we did not see any though, our bad luck I say , we did have a girl in red once again posing for a few shots

In Tumbling we arrive, part 3 of 6

Yes dawapani is 15 km from Darjeeling, a small village with a view of Mt kanchanjunga, above is the image we had seen while planning the trip here, 980 km from Home
This Morning was a washout, no view of Kanchenjunga as yuou can see what we saw, oh well the glory of being in the hills
and I spend the early morning with cups of tea and #Achal_pakhrin, the girl of the house who is a avid singer, and a great presence in instagram, loved her energy,
slowly all woke up and we did a few images on the front lawn of our wonderful host who was patient with us and let us Photograph him in various avatars,
Followed by breakfast of vegetable momos which were just amazing
And a walk into the park for a few Km, not much but still helps digest food and warms us up with our photography
Today we would be headed for Tumbling 3000 meters approx. date was 16th march today and we set off by 1030 hrs. 30 odd km to Manyabhanj, and then I was told I could not take my bike any further on road towards Tumbling, Seems few bikers had come to this national park, misbehaved with nature, destroyed rhododendron trees, played loud music, and more and thus bikes had been banned, (needless to say the forest authorities don’t own up to the fact they failed on there job to protect the park, but banning is easy then actually working, if only the DFO had the guts to say they woudl make sure such actions will not be repeated and they woudl educate bikers before they head out into the park,,, but then such officers are non existant seems like,,, so there we are)
As Bikes had been banned to Sandakfu, and we would have to rent a jeep, well I was forced to park my bike at our guide shyams house for the next 3 days.
Rented 2 4x4 n we drove to tumbling, where we would stay 3 days these land rovers are only a shell, they have the bolero engine inside and yes they are 4 * 4 En-route we stopped at Chitre as the fog rolled in and we had a lovely photo opportunity and took 30 minutes to acclimatize and enjoy being in nature
We were at Tumbling by 1600 hours and stomach was growling for some food, the town had 5 houses all home stay, on the border of India and Nepal, depending on which entrance one used one could be stepping into Nepal or India
Soon evening descended it gets dark by 1730 hours and By was it cold, the temperature quickly sank to -1 we froze but lived to see another day.
Next day wake up time was 0500 hours We were hoping to see Kanchenjunga , (sleeping Buddha) Sunrise time is 0540 hrs Dinner was served by 1930 hrs n we retired early. #kanchanjunga #backtonewnormalseries #canonindiaofficial #edenonearth #tumbling #roadtrip #earlymorning #relationships #instamood #bestoftheday #editorialphotography #rajatghoshphotography #rajatghoshfilm #editorialphotographer #biketaleswithrajat #india #wisdom #love #Pure #environmentalportraits #photographytrip #RoyalEnfiled #balance #poise #moods #chitre
