This year literally tested me. I may have spent 20 days (or more) taking various examinations. Class 12 selection test, board examinations, three engineering entrance examinations, college admission tests, college semester examinations.

I took admission into Ramakrishna Mission Residential College.

My aunt and my brother came after two years, as did my grandfather’s brother (whom I call Kakadadu), after four years.

We went to Uttarakhand. We experienced extraordinary places there.

Landour’s temperatures are quite low during night, and pleasant during the day. The location is what makes it special. And that is what made the last location of our 2014 Uttarakhand trip magical!
