Dakshineshwar and Adyapeeth.

Paid a visit to Dakshineshwar, I went there last in 2006 methinks, even then it was a temple, now it looks like a commercial hub like all temples of Kolkata, they really don’t give you the feeling that you are entering abode of God. But, as the plan was to test my new camera, the trip was fun if not pious!

the statue is of Swami Vivekananda.

you can guess that the temple in the background is the Dakshineshwar temple, I decided not to enter the temple premises, was simply in the outer area.

me of course!

The ghat of Ganges.

a launch in ganges.

Shriramkrishna paramhansa, who made Dakshineshwar a favorite among Kolkata folks.

After Dakshineswhar we paid a vist to Adyapeeth, hoping we will be able to offer puja there but the priest was on leave! But something better happened, courtesy to a lady who works there, she opened the door of a shiv temple wide open and allowed me to offer my puja there, enter the temple and actually offer my puja without a middleman to meddle [that is my firm opinion of priests mostly, barring two I have come across].

A bookworm transformed into an addicted writer. I love to write and illustrate them myself. By love I mean love, no half-hearted relationship, a full-fledged, passionate love, I can’t pass two days in a stretch without writing/painting (cyber), just feel empty like lovers do when their lovers are away on a tour! Even though I am thoroughly enjoying self-publishing with amazon, but if you like my work and want to publish my works in your magazine, books or better if you want to publish a book of my works please make me very happy by contacting me. Or if you want to sell my works on commission basis only!! contact me, I will be quite relieved. Honestly writing and selling your own work is a very BORING combination. So you are more than welcome!
