Some Pictures from Sikkim

The Road to the Nathu-La (India-China Border, Sikkim)

I am back from my trip to Sikkim and the semester has begun too! I have so much to write about the trip but it will take me a few days to start writing proper posts. I thought, in the meanwhile, I will share my pictures from Sikkim.

I thank you all so much who have left comments on my previous posts. I hate to leave my comments unanswered but that too will take me a day or two. I hope the new year started on just the right note for all of you. My right note is visible in the pictures.

  1. this one on top of the clouds, is beautiful picture.How was the weather? Esp, did you find it a good time of year to visit the place? I have this idea of seeing one full cycle of sun(ie. 24 hrs day), wherever I go(if others are patient enough). and hence the question … what part of the day did you find most interesting? why? How was the food? and people?

  2. Ketan, I wrote a detailed post and then had to take it down as the Gonomad guys are considering it for publication on their main webpage.

I quit my job as a professor in May 2015. I am having a blast ever since. I do not miss my work but sometime I do miss my salary! Somewhere along the journey I ended up acquiring a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur! I now wonder why?
