Photographer's Note

WellAnother one from Susunia..This time depicting the greenery that prevails there with long stretches of road where driving is such a great pleasure..!!I was trying out to take the road with the greenery all around but then I saw this man coming in his bicycle so included him the the shot as an element of dynamism..!!

Susunia is the name of a hill with 400 m height stretching 3.2 km. It is situated at a distance of 20 km from the district town, Bankura. The river Gandheswari flows along the foot of the hill. Susunia is connected with bus routes from Bankura. In the 4th century there was a fort built by King Chandrabar-man. Now-a-days, because of its height, it has become an ideal site for undergoing training in mountaineering. The archaeolog­ists also have found relics of the reign of King Chandrabarman. On the hillside-there is a small murmuring waterfalls. By the side of the falls, there is a small minar of about 2 m height. This minar is worshipped by the local people as a symbol of Nrisingha-an incarna­tion of Lord Vishnu. Susunia is famous for Dokra art and craft (Dokra is the art of manufacturing in a special technique various gift item, idols etc. with brass).

I tried out a different kind of frame here..do let me know how you like it..!!!

Enjoy..!!!
