This is a typical village in the state of Odisha, India.
When I was a kid, I used to spend summer vacations at my village. I love this place. Me and my sister carried small vessels on our waist and brought water from this very tube-well. In earlier days, there were no water filters. Ground water was used for bathing and drinking.
There was no gas cylinder or cooking stoves. Food was cooked using wood and on these make-shift clay stoves called chulhaa. And trust me on this, the food used to have an unique and amazing taste with a little smoky flavor.
This is where my father grew. This is where my mother came to her in-laws house after her marriage. This is the place which I used to visit for at least 2 months in a year. But as I grew up I couldn’t visit for even once a year. I yearn to go back to this place. This is one of the places I love. This is where my heart is.
So, I was just having breakfast one morning when I looked at my gorgeous looking, shiny, buttery and perfectly crispy cheese sandwich and I thought why not capture the intricate details of the beauty for this week’s challenge..

I hate to be inside during evenings, particularly in between 5-7 pm. My office gets over at 5. Either I stay late and take up extra work or go out with friends. This particular day I had to return early. So I thought to take a stroll on the terrace and that’s when I captured the evening sun in a different view.
