The local election results were to be announced that afternoon .Oblivious to the fact that Kalimpong would be shut down and there’d be paramilitary forces stationed almost everyhwere to prevent political clashes , we left Darjeeling on a rainy day to reach this beautiful hill station in West Bengal.
We headed straight to Dr Graham’s Homes .Started by a missionary Rev. Dr J A Graham more than a century ago, it has grown from humble beginnings to a miniature town for children. The walk up the slope to the complex was magical. Drizzle , mist and pink wild flowers that shone among the blades of grass. Fairyland must look like that !
