@Regrann from @talesoncanvas - A foggy morning it was.. fog & cloud kept roaming from door ro door..that made the hamlet mystique as always..
We were having a walk down the road towards the village from our homestay.. the hilly village was just waking up.. We spotted a family chatting together..we were not sure whether it was a shop or not.. still we asked if we could have some tea..
Theirs was no shop actually..a homestay, still they said that we could have some tea with them.. we sat in the warmth of the chulli inside..& talked about their life in this remote hilly village..what they cultivate.. how after walking for few miles in hilly raod through forest they get to ride a public transport.. the rice they bring from far away..rice for themselves & for the guests as well.. how occassuinal view of Kanchenjungha pleases them.. ..some words about us..where we come from & so on.. they kept on serving teas & at the end refused to take money..but we insisted..
She,her husband & daughter they all manage many flower plants in their homestay & happily said that we could stay there anytime later.. While leaving them behind I was wondering.. amidst this cloud,rain & everything..what my stay in hill & its people teach me..? Whatever..I will think later.. but one thing I know.. their company & simple life makes me happy.. a simple happiness..sometimes that we all long for.... .
