Day 2 continues....

The day began with a nice cup of strong coffee and a steaming dosa at the Indian coffee house...it too had a legacy retained in its preindependence look.A comfortable place with a sprinkle of intelligentsia on every table...it was quite a unique experience..the aroma of coffee mixed with the interesting look on the faces around me gave a pampered feel to the greys in me, it was as if the great Indian leaders were discussing what was to be the future of our country, a life free from bondage....I, a mere observer made my way to the mall road about to come across a lot many interesting things that danced on my imagination.


(This pic has been browsed from the net as I clicked the mall at night.All the other pics have been taken by me.) My steps took me towards the mall road. "The mall road is a promenade constructed during the British rule, and is the key attraction of Shimla."Its a broad streach with shops on both sides .... most buildings in shimla still remind one of the British era...its amazing how the old world charm blends with the new, making the experience a unique one. The smell of delicious food from the various outlets gave a delicious aroma to the surrounding. The mall road was brimming with life....the excitement had just begun... As I strolled on the mall road I came across an exhibition put up by the the Sahitya Kala Academy Delhi..It was quite a treat coz arts for me has been like a favourite sibling ...I stepped in to relish the beauty that man invented through his imagination...while nature waited outside, its man made imprints danced before my eyes..






My next stop was marked by a serene beauty.....
