Sunday Mornings

Last Sunday the morning began with a walk . Early mornings with the onset of winter is beautiful .
A hazy grey - green which changes to a bright blue with the leaves coming into focus as the sun rises . This is my favourite time of the day ..




AG 's favourite bit of the lake :-
After the walk we went for a drive around Kolkata and landed up at the Victoria Memorial . The old lady looked quite elegant in the early morning light . So did the statuary around the place.




After traversing the length of Kolkata we dropped into Saurashtra Namkeen at the corner of Southern Avenue and Lansdowne, for a packet of phuchkas . Tinkers luck - because he had run out of the stuff.So we made do with chaat papri and had dahi papri for breakfast . After that it was sheer drudgery - studying Physics and Bio with Tani for her exam. sigh.

EL This post brings back sooo many memories, almost a lump in my throat. Landsdowne Road, Victoria Memorial, puchkas, Dahi papri--too many. Been a really long time since I visited Cal. Wish I had a jolly good reason to come.

Gorgeous pictures! Just back from a flying visit to Cal myself and I think I walked past this lake too. Is it the Dhakuria one near Southern Avenue? We even saw a water snake zipping along! And of course got 'blessed' by a bird.
