Photographer's Note

The drive from Shillong made us feel more like we were walking through clouds than being mere mortals in a small car, braving the cold and terribly bumpy road. Anywhere the eyes went, there was fog, and the hills were so green that it felt as if the gods had dropped all other hues from their palette when creating Meghalaya. Providing stark contrast were the megaliths’ brown pieces of unadorned rocks standing upright on hilltops, on flat land and in the courtyard of houses. They were innumerable, these stone memorials standing for hundreds of years in honor of ancestors. No names were etched on them, no drawings, no epitaphs, just bare rocks and memories.

We stoped near Nohkalikai Falls,it is one of the tallest waterfalls in India. Its height is 1100 feet (335 metres). That beautiful mist were every where...suddenly found this little boy..He was playing with a stick and coming towords us...almost evolving from the Mist...

Enjoy the "Mist" and cold wind in the state of Meghalaya ,means ‘abode in the clouds’
