Kanatal – (Chamba, Uttarakhand)

Had a 4 day vacation due to Eid holiday on Tuesday, one of the rare opportunity for me :)

Other than taking family photos, manage to capture some beauty of nature, Kanatal rather Chamba it self is still untouched by urbanization making it a very special destination. Monsoon convert this place into heaven.

On Job

Visited Nanital over this long weekend, took a brief boat ride in Sattal. After boarding on that shaky little boat noticed that care taker of boats looking very photogenic (powerful) in lights coming from tree over smoke.

Half Sweater

Winter is here, feeling cold in air these day, temperature is dropping a degree Celsius a day from past one week, snowfall is reported in Himalayas. Entire northern India will be shivering from cold soon. Its time to take out warm clothing from closets, keep them into Sun to get rid of smell and moister.

Sleeveless sweaters are generally called “Half Sweaters” in most of part of India, hand woven, mostly wear by middle aged men are visible a lot these days, younger strong enough to tolerate this cold are still in shirts.

I also have one, not sure where, which was hand woven by mom, the last one by her.

I recall my childhood when mom and other women of neighborhood begin weaving sweaters few months before start of winters, buying wool, sticks of different numbers starts much before. A practice of each of family is loosing its battle with market full of ready-made, cheap and better in finish products, not sure they will create same warmth as hand made once….
