O is for October!
All these years in North India, we would eagerly wait for October to usher in some respite from the discomforting months of summer. However, not the October of 2016. It really disappointed us this year. We were expecting some pleasant change in the weather. Some relief from the hot sweaty days. The relief if any is measly. Fans continue to hum all the time. Nostalgia has evaporated. We celebrated Dussehra in the sweltering heat and hope that Diwali will brighten our hearth and homes with cool invigorating breeze. Change is there for the last few days but it is minuscule.
Global warming which was dismissed as a myth has scientists and environmentalists busting it totally in strong terms. Global warming is real and poses a grave danger to the existence of whole humankind and the entire living organisms. India has done its duty by signing the Paris climate treaty. It implies an active endorsement of the need to reduce carbon emissions. To safeguard the universe from extinction, the leaders of the whole world should come together to sincerely work for ways to offset the dangerous signals.
However, October here opens gateways to autumnal ambience and invites the foot looser to explore and enjoy!
I’s amidst Shivalik hills for a few days. There the weather was enviable, neither hot nor cold. I’m sharing the images, which, I took over there.
A grove of stately pines in BASAL, a village in Solan Distt. of Hlmachal Pradesh.
The combo of dark and light is possible only amidst mountains!
Friends,welcome here as always!
