My friend Sangeeta Khanna, who is a researcher, nutritionist, trekker, food photographer, traditional foods expert, and green thumb gardener, is often invited by hospitality industry types as a consultant.
One such trip took her to a place called Te Aroha Dhanachuli, a boutique resort near Nanital , in Uttarakhand.
Very clearly, the birds thought it was a great place too. She recently posted a whole set of photographs of the Birds of Te Aroha....
It is , depressingly, a sign of the times, that despite nature dressed up to the nines, in such a wonderful place, what really came to mind on seeing this, was something the new Modi Government , elected today, might be interested in doing.
Single window clearance. For construction projects.
I think the birds believe in it.

The search for a house
and the work for it
what the new government means ...
They did say
there would be
single window clearance
for construction ?
