Snowfall in Darjeeling

There are many reasons why I totally forgot to blog about one of the few important events in Darjeeling during my tenure here. Number one, I was too preoccupied with finishing my Goa series. Number two, I was too preoccupied with taking care of the practical aspects of a place recently hit by a severe hailstorm. And just imagine my plight because the place is as unprofessional and inadequate as Darjeeling. There were some cynical assholes who had once warned me about me transient nature of my romanticism. And yet here I am, despite having to spend almost thirty six hours with no electricity and with the fear that the ceiling might fall right on my head, I somehow managed to capture few amazing moments through my camera which will stay with me for the rest of my life. And hopefully, I will be able to get out of the place before I run out of my romanticism.

The first six pictures are from the day when it snowed here. The remaining bear the witness of the severe hailstorm.
