A New Year!

Fishing in the cold!
This morning's papers were all about how Lucknow my home town was colder than Shimla a hill-station north of Delhi, and I too felt the extreme cold when i walked out onto the balcony to have my morning cup of tea and call home to check on my folks.

The day was spent driving from one village to another, meeting folks, drinking tea and eating stuff at the local tea stalls. As the sun began to bid the day adieu we reached a village where a band of brothers and their aunt were fishing in the cold.

Taking breaks to shun the cold with their shivering bodies the boys were all smiles as they literally sieved the water to collect the tiny fish for a special dinner!

Its supposed to be colder tomorrow but the boys say they'll back and I am sure they will (with the same big smiles)!
