Bajlo tomar alor benu is the famous Bengali song which mens Tune of your flute of light is on. "You" is the God.
It’s an early reminder with this Puja time landscape to set your tour programme in the forthcoming Durga Puja vacation. Autumn in west Bengal ushers with its soft golden sunlight reflecting over the seasonal Kashful (Kash flower) beds waving as teased by the cool breeze.
Kashful is a white fluffy inflorescence of a grass, named Kash in Bengali. Large beds of such flowers are unique views of Autumn in West Bengal. We smell Puja vacation with the appearance of such atmosphere but it is too late at that time to get the transport and accommodation booking.
This ideal landscape matching the caption allured me last year while approaching Pedong, which is the history laden mountain village on the ancient Silk-route in Kalimpong subdivision of Darjeeling district.
The caption is the famous song that exactly describes the Autumn sunlight, white cotton wool clouds floating in the clear blue sky and the waving Kash flower beds in Puja-time.
It was at Siliguri while crossing a bridge on a feeder stream of Mahananda River a glimpse to the left unfolded the song playing in this landscape. I had to get down and activate both my movie and still digitals.
Hope you like it.

Dear Dr. Bhunia,
Congratulations on capturing an excellent picture. The Kash flowers and the sky is so soothing to the eye.

This is fantastic vision...
What a dreamy land ........
In Kerala too, these large flowers can bee seen, but you have merged them with the beauty of the mountains and the gorgeous light....

This is a nice capture.But I think the colour could have been improved, it lacks the vividness I guess.Also I have the feeling that the brightness is on the higher side.Otherwise I like the low angle of shooting here.

Hi Dr. Bhunia,
Nice to see your comeback on TE after long time. I like the composition of your picture but yes colour is a matter of concern here. POV is good.

I'm glad to see you back. I love the atmosphere on the photo. Those flowers, the river,the dark mountain on the bg and that shining glorious sky make a great compo. Strange to see such a Autumn mood when the Summer is about to arrive (I wouldn't say this if you were from AUS or NZ, of course :-).
Best regards, José.

Hello Dr. Bhunia,
Welcome back after a long time. You have captured it really well. I like the clouds in the sky and over the hills very much. The caption is just perfect. Nice work.

Hello Dr. J.
An excellent Autumnal shot set in West Bengal, with the fluffy kash. I have seen such plants in North Carolina, USA — around 36° Norht latitude. I wonder if these colorful, fluffy grass is the same. Your photo is beautifully conceive and implimented.

Hello Dr. Bhunia,
Welcome back on Trek Earth :) It's nice to see you upload after such a long time.
This one looks so soft in colours and calm with all these reeds on a marshy and sandy place. As in your note; "The Bajlo tomar alor benu is the famous Bengali song which means Tune of your flute of light is on", In my opinion, these tall marsh grasses; probably used to make reed instruments are the presentments of the wind flow through causes them to vibrate and create sound.
Very imaginative...If one could see the analogy ;)
Thanks for sharing

I likethe subdued colours here and the POV however the upper portion is over exposed and the easy answer which would suit the image would be to crop that section out as it also does not balance with what is below. Crop it and then a perfect shot as I do very much like the way you have captured the grasses
Nice to see you have put some more photos on

The line of kash works well...still some months to go when we see this scene again. Good low POV, but I think brightness can be reduced & contrast boosted which wud bring out the beauty even more
