The shore:

As the evening set in, the boats turned towards the shore.

Soon, the coast filled with jolly fishermen, who boasted about their catch. All the colourful boats were brimming with mackerel, tuna, codfish.

All except one. Continue reading Once upon an evening sea

Orange in my life

Today is Holi- a festival of colours in India. I hope everyone has a colourful life full of joy, and love.

This week’s  weekly photo challenge is orange. For the challenge, I decided to portray three of my favourite things: Food, nature, and books.  😀

Orange- Meetha khaja
Khaja- Goan dessert made from jaggery.

Khaja is my favourite dessert. It is an Indian sweet prepared from jaggery. It is a delicacy available in Goa, and Konkan region of Maharashtra.

A solitary evening

Of dim and solitary loveliness,
I learn’d the language of another world.”
