Photographer's Note

Jayanti (or Jainty) is a very small picturesque village close to Buxa Reserve Forest in Jalpaiguri district of West Bengal, India. The place is on the banks of Jayanti river inside the reserve. The river forms a natural border with the Bhutan Hills (Sinchulla Range).
It is only 30 km away from Alipurduar Rly. Station but the place is still not overcrowded with tourists as one has to pre-arrange conveyance from the station to reach here.

The picture is of the most important part of the village, the tree and its cemented pedestal being the central point. Under other trees nearby you can find two tea-stalls, a small eating place, a medical store and even a barber-shop!

Can you read what is written on the platform?
There are 3 questions;
1)Who am I?
2)From where I come?
3)After death where I go?

There is no clue as to who has written this. I think it will be written after the writer discovers who he/she is.
