Relentless

Western Ghats during monsoons is one of the most beautiful visuals one can ever get n India. Relentless rains all the Way from Sakleshpur. No signs of stopping. A sleeper class travel on one of the most relaxed rides on the Konkan coast. Life is not all about meeting deadlines and a rat race.  The simplest pleasures of life are the least expensive ones.

Happiness is …

Is it the train ? Is it the rain ? Is it the journey ? Is it the cool wind rushing on your face ? Is it the rhythm of the train or the falling rain ? Is it the feel of early morning fresh monsoons on your hand ? What is bliss ? The answers to all these questions are hidden in this beautiful portrait.

Happiness is ...
Happiness is …

 

The Black Hole

Konkan Railway in the monsoons is an absolute delight to travel. This coastal railway along and through the western ghats provide 2 distinct landscapes for our viewing pleasure, Mangalore to Madgaon & Madgaon to Mumbai. However the tunnels, viaducts, bridges, greenery, rains, mountains and an enchanting experience is a common trait shared by both these sections. Seen here is our Pune bound Ernakulam – Pune (Poorna) Express, awaiting a crossing with the Madgaon – Mangalore intercity express at the picturesque Karwar. Seen ahead is T-80, Karwar Tunnel, 3 KM in length cutting through the western ghats.
