Photographer's Note

Kalimpong, my home town, is a quiet and slow little place.
It is often by-passed by tourists for other more touristy destinations like Darjeeling & Sikkim.
But, there is a tranquility associated to Kalimpong which can only be felt when you have no itinerary and no specific plans when you come here.
It is one of those places where you need to throw away your watch and let the place reveal itself to you.
The photo is of a newly built swimming pool 30 mins drive from Kalimpong near the Relli River.
Local boys adept in swimming have been employed as Life-Guards helping the local economy develop in this place of few opportunities.
