Graduation Countdown

Today, its exactly 63 days till I graduate. On May the 16th at 5:00 pm, I will finish my last exam. After that, it will be a different life. I will leave the North-East for ever and head to the south of India. The transition is of mammoth proportions. Starting from the culture to the physical appearance, everything is different. I am thrilled as well as nervous. I am not sure whether I will be able to tolerate this overdose of culture shock.

Recently I visited Tezpur in Assam. This is the place where I grew up. I did my schooling from the local Kendriya Vidyalaya here. So, the memories associated with this place are the most cherished. Tezpur is surrounded by Army barracks on three sides and by the mighty Brhamputra on the other. Spread among these are an array of tea gardens. Tea is the prime export of Assam and one of the largest source of revenue for the state government.

The beauty of a tea garden cannot be explained by words. One has to see it to experience it. When I will leave this part of the country, I am going to miss the tea gardens very much.

One more thing which I am gonna miss, is the Lower Himalayas. The beauty and the serenity with which the clouds cover the massive hills, is something special. Here is one such photo taken by me.
