The town of Haridwar reflected on the Ganges

After what seems to be one of my longest, and surely the most unexpected spell of absence, I'm glad to be able to update once again.

Dark have been my days of late, and even as I speak, the shawdow lies over me, yet I hope for a brighter dawn. Ok, enough of the LoTR fever that has been rekindled since I started reading the Lord of The Rings one more time, which was after the real sickness had caught me. Apparently I haven't learned much from TreeBeard and am speaking in a rather "hasty" manner. Here's the deal, haunted by exams for the first half, pursued by heat (and other things) for a week, and plagued by Jaundice till today, I hadn't been able to update. But it looks like things are getting back to normal, as the sickness has started decreasing and I was finally able to catch up on the last episode of Lost and transfer the shots from my recent trip to Rishikesh and Kotdwar for the Bhoomi Puja of my Mama's new company - Sunbeam Remedies' production unit. Got a few more shots there, and will hopefully post them as I get better.

Glad to see my regular visitors returning!

Anchal: Yup, it does look like on fire, and considering the number of diyas that the Ganga recieves, it may well be true! ;)

Varenya: You really MUST read LoTR, seeing that you haven't done it yet. Well after 8th May I guess, and may you farewell in the remaining papers. And I wasn't thinking what's with the formality, cause I've seen the effect of exams on you all over the internet..lol.

Maya: Thanks a lot. :) The place itself is stunning and definitely worth a visit.
