The Wayfarer Diaries: Rain and Snow

13-12-2017, 0802 hours, Viceregal Lodge (IIAS), Shimla, Himachal Pradesh, India:

Winters…! It’s the second day since the winter rains started. Though the weather cleared last night with stars twinkling in the dark sky, the clouds and the fog have reappeared this morning, same as yesterday. Many higher regions in the northern Himalaya have witnessed snowfall as well, including Kufri and Narkanda near Shimla. It might still be snowing there although we don’t have any updates yet. But for now, I can’t get enough of my favourite man-made structure in Shimla – The Viceregal Lodge (a.k.a. Indian Institute of Advanced Studies). Aahh…!!
