Rendezvous: #FridayFictioneers

A Getaway to Creative Wonderland: #WanderlustWednesday

  It’s a cloudy Sunday morning. But the sun, though hiding behind the rain pregnant clouds, steals in a shower of golden glow upon me- or is it a creative glow?  I’m blissfully unaware of the fact that this will be an eventful day; packed in a mean, scintillating punch.

        These palms are ancient, and as beautiful as can be. They are lined across the drive-way of the Vice-Chancellor’s abode in Pantnagar University.
