“It is always the same with mountains. Once you have lived with them for any length of time, you belong to them. There is no escape.”
― Ruskin Bond, Notes from the Himalayas

I had the pleasure to meet Ruskin Bond in his own town Mussoorie, where he comes once every week from his residence in Landour(twin town of Mussoorie) to his Bookshop in Kulri Bazaar.His quote is 100% true and I can attest to that after living in hills for over a year.I am finding it quite difficult to settle in the plains with my mind always longing for a way back at the earliest possible opportunity.

In this piece, I’m posting few of my clicks from my year in Mussoorie.


 April sky


 Rain pouring down on a school building


Clouds eclipsing the George Everest point


Always enjoyed driving on these pleasant scenic paths


Deep conversations at high places


Serene sunsets

Reminiscing all these memories, the following song comes to my mind.

“There are places I remember
All my life, though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places have their moments
With lovers and friends, I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life, I’ve loved them all”

— In my Life, The Beatles

  1. I have seen Mussoorie change year by year. From being a remote hill station to becoming a popular tourist center. Your pictures are lovely! Did you guys go to the amazing char Dukaan?
