all those weekend outings
during boarding school life
never brought me here.
because it was off bounds
(though only 100 yards further)
and i was that goody two shoes
who broke no rules 😉
but i finally made it.
this is the famed ruskin bond hangout.
on certain saturdays when he is in mussoorie
he actually comes here and chills with his fans
he came to our school once
I vaguely remember
but i realised I would not read his books twice
once is good enough…
but this place is a must visit
if you want ruskin bond collection
all his books are housed neatly
i however collected
a ruskin bond selection instead.
This place was clean, almost empty and beachy
how I wish I could lay on the sand
except we came unprepared.
this was one of those unassuming beaches
that tourists give a miss
and only realize its worth
after they get there
but what a joy it was
to land here during a lazy stroll…
The last picture is my favourite.
The sun was intense
and the sand was warm
he found the sign board
for that shade away from the sun
Although the auto driver took us first to the State Museum,
we refused to enter because we did not have enough time
and state museums are often big disappointments.
So, we went to the tribal museum
and found ourselves wanting to spend the whole day there.
