Sunrise, Sunset and Sunshine captured over places – A little more of Sunsets than Rises and a bit more of the ones in GOA

 

 

 

 

 

Sunset at Arombol Beach Goa, didn’t hear of the place till last years trip from office. A must visit if you seek to stay clear of the crowds of Baga and Calangute. The shacks these days offer Hookah’s too.

Crepuscular rays during sunrise at Fort Aguada GOA, a freshwater spring within the fort provided water supply to the ships that used to stop by. This is how the fort got its name: Aguada, meaning Water. Crews of passing ships would often visit to replenish their fresh water stores

 

 

 

 

Sun-rays at Bandhavgarh National Park,  the park derives its name from the most prominent hillock of the area, which is said to be given by Hindu Lord Rama to his brother Lakshmana to keep a watch on Lanka (Ceylon). Hence the name Bandhavgarh (Sanskrit: Brother’s Fort).

A long-awaited Family Trip to Kharagpur with my Mom, sister and Brother In Law

 

Morning Drive out of Calcutta to Kharagpur, leaving via Vidyasagar Setu.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Approach to the Vidyasagar Setu,  the first cable-stayed bridge in India, the largest in Asia and the third largest in the world. It took 20 years to complete the foundation being laid by Indira Gandhi.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The bridge was also subject to prototype wind tunnel tests at the Indian Institute of Science Bangalore
