🍁🍀🍁🍀🍁 'The Journey 💙'-Scenic coast line between Helsingor and Copenhagen. It was one the most beautiful bus ride that I could remember, from Helsingor to Klampanborg enroute to Copenhagen. The bus passes through countrysides, small Danish villages, cobbled alleyways, pastel-coloured houses and thatched cottages, with beautiful sea views. From distance, the harbour town Helsingor is visible. It was a bright sunny day, early April, spring time in Denmark.🌻🌼🌻🌼🌻

Yumthang Valley- Lachung, North Shikkim 🌹🌼🏵️💮🌼
.
.
.
A flower scantuary, known as 'Valley of flowers'. The Valley is on full bloom from March to May. You can see rainbow of colours- many varieties of Rhododendrons, Poppies, and many more floras on both sides of the road. Yamthang is 11,690ft above sea level. River Teesta flows through the valley. The valley is surrounded by hot spring, rolling meadows, river, snow clade mountain tops, numerous water falls, flowers and flowers. The feeling/view you get is almost similar to Interlaken of Switzerland. Weather changes quite fast here, sometimes sunny then foggy and may be some rain shower. That's what we experienced in May. From the valley you can see the panoramic view of Himalaya, all arround, and that is breath-taking. .

First day of the new financial year. A new beginning of the year. And 'Thinking, fast and slow' by Daniel Kahneman in my reading list. Lots of recommendation for the book. Definitely a great masterpiece. Book on mind, choices, intuitive and emotional thinking.

🌼 ଉତ୍କଳ ଦିବସର ଅଭିନନ୍ଦନ🌼 Vande Utkala Janaji🌹

Odisha Day (Utkala Dibasha), celebrated on 1 April by Odiyas, in the memory of the formation of the state as a separate province on 1 April 1936 on a linguistic basis. In our national anthem 'Jana gana mana' Odisha state is referred as 'Utkala'. Cuttack was then the capital of newly formed state with six districts; Cuttack, Puri, Koraput, Sambalpur, Ganjam and Baleshwara.

Today on reading list, 'Shilapadama' by Dr Pratibha Ray. My favourite author, sure for many Odiyas. This one read during Master days. Wanted to read again, so last time picked up from "Granthalaya" bookstore in Market building, Bhubaneswar.
.
.
.
.. "The stream of time sweeps away errors, and leaves the truth for the inheritance of humanity" - Shilapadma.

It is the story of 'Konarka- The Sun Temple', culture, sculptures, king, artistry, sacrifice of sculptors, history.. enriching saga. Every time I visit 'Konarka', I get lost. Can't stop admiring the creation...and then the story of 'Shilapadma'. For a moment you feel the story is real. . .
.
.
.First time published in 1983. She describes a parallel world of 700 yrs old chronicle, construction of Konarka. And how beautifully she has written, the story, the fiction, the exploration, the history.....!!!

Bright and colourful Sea anemone, found in deep ocean. Due to their cylindrical body, tentacles and colourful appearance, they are named after anemone, a terrestrial flowering plant. Anemones are predatory animals. They have an incomplete gut; the gastrovascular cavity functions as a stomach and has a single opening to outside.

Sea anemones have great powers of regeneration. They are capable of changing their shape dramatically. Their muscle can lengthen, contact, bend and twist.

Occilating Sea anemones are a beautiful to sight to watch 💚
