Hi All, Before coming to my new place, I was at Siliguri, nice place to enjoy life. Just to share few things about this place.
Siliguri is the gateways to Darjeeling, Sikkim, Nepal, Dooars, Bhutan and most of the North-East states of India. Siliguri is the main commercial city of North Bengal and its importance comes from its strategic location near international and state borders.

Geographically the location of Siliguri is unique. Siliguri is situated in the foothills of Eastern Himalayas range. It is banked by two rivers VIZ Teesta and Mahananda river. The surrounding areas of the city are beautiful.

You will find People here are more polite and helpful. People here find enjoys in all situations/festivals. I remember the day, when India won T20 world cup last year, people came out of the houses to roads to celebrate. They played with colors, lights and music the whole night to show their unity, happiness and patriotism. Nowadays, Siliguri is booming with new entrants like corporate sectors, Shopping Malls, etc.

Kaal gujar raha hai
Samay bitta ja raha hai
Sab kuch badal raha hai
Rishte dor mein simte jaa rahe hain
Yaadein parchai si lag rahi hai

Saanjh ho rahi hai
Koi barson ki tadpan khatam ho rahi hai
Hawaon ka rukh badal gaya hai
Dil ki dhadkan tham si gayi hai
Kuch pal aur..........
Phir ye sama dhal jayega
Hum, apne ek yug se dur naye yug mein pravesh karenge
Ab ek anjana sawal ..........
Zindagi kis taraf jaa rahi hai.....??
Jawab sirf Kaal batayega aur samay nibhayega.

April Full

April, this month lots of things happened to me, like....

!st April, I went to my Hometown Nasik. Home is always an enjoying place. I enjoyed there a lot. Mom made lots of dishes and sweets. My bro n sis was busy for their exams so I went to mahalaxmi, mumbai to watch my Dad's horse Show. On the final day, the club there threw a party, which was full of big shots, business tycoons, bollywood n of course lots of plastic ppl.
I back to Nasik the next day. I went to my college to refresh my old memories, thn enjoyed a lots with my frnds. This time I made few new friends. Back to pavilion (Kolkata) on 12th.

*After coming back, I with sanjiv went to Kalyani , my another roommate Joydeep’s home. Since the name is very old sort of, so I used to call kalyani as kalyani Gaon(village). But it is not a gaon, it is a well planned, nice weather n green city. Joydeep show us everything bole to every corner, every building of kalyani. We went to one famous lake of kalyani, which was totally dried, popat.........
One thing I liked very much in kalyani, tht was an old Laxminarayan temple. The architect is superb. Must visit.
While roaming in kalyani, I came to know a very exciting thing tht kalyani was some years ago, a base camp for US Air force. The city was earlier known as Roosevelt Town. Now the Question is how It named as Kalyani. Well, it is a love story. A man(name hidden) who loved a girl named kalyani, but unfortunately, he could not marry her, so he decided to make a town of her name in the memory of their love. (Town is larger than Taj, right.......)
Well, while coming back, we decided that next time we all go there in group n visit all places including that temple.

*Few days ago, I went to ATM with Nidhi n Monami. On the way we decided to have thumsup, when this idea struck in Nidhi's big brain that why not try having it in a kullhar (mud-glasses) and believe it was so good, all foamy and despite it being all chilled, it was so easy to drink……….
Recommendation, do have it, its worth the experience, and u know what, Nidhi could use this idea in her future restaurant……….the Indian feel!!!

*From the last few days, lots of ppl suggest me to chg my blog so I have changed my blog template n still trying to search the good one. Need Help from Rana n Roy.

*Bacardi Blast: Last night Gopal, our classmate n colleague gave us his first salary treat. At around 7 pm he came with Bacardi. We were talli (drunk), the next hour. Then at 10 pm we went for dinner in a new restaurant in hazra i.e. Sher-e-punjab. We had lots of chicken n mutton with pulao, roti, raita, coldrinks n lots.........forget coz we were talli. But the food, i mean drink.....I mean the party was really rocking.

*You know when something hit on ur head, u see numerous stars n plants revolve around ur head, same thing is happening with me. I can see lots of books, notes, handouts, etc. are revolving around my head coz exam tension is hitting my head.

*Tomorrow our juniors are giving us Farewell Party. The theme of the party is Patro….. We were still planning what to wear n how. We are looking forward to it coz it is our last function of our student life, isn't it?

It is till 21st april, next events will b added later...........
