Horizon #WordlessWednesday

View from the terrace of my hostel at Dehradun
-Once upon a cloudy afternoon-


The picture that I had clicked on my phone camera was a bit dull in color and contrast. This filtered and beautified image was suggested by Google Assistant as I was uploading it to the Google Photos app. Loved this version. Much nearer to the actual scene. :D


Linking this post to #WordlessWednesday


  1. Thank you for linking up with us, Pratikshya. This is so close to nature and I am imagining what a quiet and peaceful place this must be, where you presently live. The picture takes me down memory lane to the college campus where I grew up, in the hills, which also looked very similar with the hills and the clouds far beyond.

    1. Wow. Your college years must have been so memorable. I hope my days here would be special too.

  2. Dehradune is a beautiful place indeed. I love spending time there. Thanks for sharing this piece!

  3. What a mesmerising shot. Wish I lived in a home with a view like this too. So glad to have you link up with us on #WordlessWednesday Pratikshya. :))

  4. Wow! How I wish i had a view like this when I was in college. Okay, leave that thought - I would love to live around the mountains. Beautiful picture and thank you for taking us so close to where you live. :)

  5. Its a lovely click and love the clarity and detailing you have portrayed in the image. :

  6. I am not a fan of filtered images and I do understand the photo in such overcast setting would have come out dull and dark. And, I guess this photo is more about the feeling you had that day in such a scene.

  7. Beautiful sight from your hostel and you were lucky to be serenaded by nature :)

  8. Pretty! This was an extremely wonderful post. Thanks for supplying this info.

  9. Love the variety of colors in the pic. (My second attempt at commenting)

Queeristan by Parmesh Sahani

  Queeristan (Amazon Link) Thanks to Audible Free Trial I listened to this amazing non-fiction on LGBTQ inclusion in Indian workplaces. Author Parmesh Sahani identifies as gay Indian, working closely with Godrej higher management and employees for years to create an inclusive workplace, both legally and in spirit. This book is a result of those years of experience, research, collaboration with individuals from difference spectrum of the society and organizations who has successfully transitioned into a queer friendly one.   Indian history is inclusive. From the Khajuraho temple architectures, to Konark to the Rig Veda, there is existing proofs even 2000 years ago of Indian inclusiveness of queer. It’s the draconian British law that criminalised it, which was scraped in 2009, came into effect once again following a sad judgement in 2013 and eventually was scraped off for good in 2018. I am in awe of the lawyers who fought this legal battle- colleagues and partners – Arundhati Katju
