“We are on our way to the Gompa (Buddhist Temple). We go there every morning to meditate for an hour or two daily. We have to go uphill so it’s a bit tiring at this age, but this is how we would like to start our day . . Our children – they live in the city, and we sometimes go to visit them, but we soon start longing to come back to the hills. We like the peace and quiet here. This is our home. We have been telling our children to come back home.. but they seem caught up for now.”
“We are visiting Nagaland for a friend’s wedding. We’re on our way to Noune resort* and had to stop for a shot of the sunset. So beautiful . . . just like the people here – so calm, warm . . . and in a quiet beautiful world of their own” *Check out details about Noune resort here. Chilling in the Longchen Homestay (which is like super homely and everything there is made with bamboo and wood) – before heading out to explore Nagaland 🙂
“Grandpa is playing the dog and I’m playing the cat! I love cats! cats cats!!!!” **Gives a big smile, and kisses Grandpa**
“Alumni Night [at CEPT,Ahmedabad] is something I always look forward to – since it happens during Navratri.Friends from from all over come together to attend this one night of dancing. It’s like you never left. . . . and to be back here again in the same campus – catching with an old friend is just perfect.” “I had a long day but I’ll never be too tired to dress up for the night. It’s like the best thing about Navratri – wearing a chaniya choli! 🙂 Law garden (in Ahmedabad) have an amazing collection of traditional stuffs – especially the jewellery!”
“About 10 years ago my daughter suggested that I open a small shop. So I started selling Sinju* and I am happy that I have many customers today. I’m known here by the name ‘Aunty Sinju’ *laughs* Editor’s note: Aunty Sinju sits at Pakai College entrance gate , and her Sinju is so popular that people come all the way from Dimapur (about 15Kms away) to buy the snack. *Sinju is a local snack, which is a mix of shredded cabbage, nokna leaves (water crest), meat , crispy (uncooked) wai wai noodles , papad, chilli sauce and the special sinju masala. It is the perfect afternoon snack on a cold rainy day!
Well not really 🙂 but she knows her photo is going online. “Are you taking my photo? You are going to put it on the internet and show it to people nah?”
“On Sundays – after the church service is over, we always get together for tea at any one of our friend’s place. Today we came to see Naro’s new house. It is very nice with a big kitchen and a big front yard – perfect for afternoon tea”
Hi. This is Aket and he is bored of human company. But when he gets lonely, he goes and sits next to the photo frame. His owner <Imcha> says, “He can only tolerate people from a distance – and especially if they are inside a frame haha” #WorldCatDay
Say hi to our adorable little (about to be) 3 year old boy, who wants to take a picture with every flower pot his mother owns 😀 “Mummy flower photo” every single time. Who finds this cute?!!
“We are 5 of us in the family – 3 siblings and my parents. We love going to school and after school, we help our parents in household chores – we sometimes feed the pigs,the hens and help out our mother in the kitchen. After this, we’re allowed to play for a while and then we’re back to books doing our homework. We walk to school everyday.”
