Shillong Jottings


Share post:


City park or fortress?

Amidst the chaos of Thana Road is a mysterious park, shrouded in secrecy and guarded by a legion of hawkers more vigilant than the Queen’s guard. Is it a park? Is it a fortress? Who knows! Trying to gain access is like attempting to crack into a forbidden zone.
So, while the elusive park remains tantalizingly out of reach, for the children and locals there’s only the likes of the tourist hub, Ward’s lake, and the Lady hydari Park, also known as the Phan Nonglait Park, now.

Are we in Shillong or Norway?

Shillong residents were treated to a spectacle, when the sun god was tired of the limelight, and decided to take a break, at 3:30 pm, leaving mortals scratching their heads and questioning their sanity, as it got completely dark.
As Shillongites were just preparing for what you thought was an apocalypse, the sun decided to make a fashionable entrance. Ah, the drama! But wait, the cycle continued!
After the heavy spell of rain and hailstorms, a scooty tried hard standing its ground but miserably failed so!
