Violet and Gold Skies

View a variety of skies around the world at Sky Watch.

Bhopal is very much in the news these days. What happened 26 years back was tragic and the tragedy continues!

I went through my archives and found quite a few photographs of Bhopal. The Bhopal Lake is popularly called by the locals as Bada Talab. This Lake is said to have been constructed in the 11th century during the rule of Raja Bhoj, the erstwhile King of Malwa.

I still recall the brisk early morning walk along the Bada Talab on that cold morning in December, and also the relaxed time during sunset that same evening. Here are a few shots of that day:
