The Chair (and its owner)
This chair has seen better days for sure. But it is kept functional with a plank and rug. The sort of make-do that is so commonplace where functionality rules over style.
The owner is some kind of a handyman, and this room is his station. He also keeps some candy and snacks available. Might as well kill the dull hours making a few bucks! :)

The birth of the River Ganges at Devprayag
The Bhagirathi (blue-green waters) meets the Alaknanda to form India's most sacred river, and its lifeline, the Ganga or Ganges.
Hindu's consider the pure clean waters of the Bhagirathi as Ganga's source stream, while logically the greater headwaters of the Alaknanda should be the real source of the river.

Fire-capped Tit
I am at a stage in my India birding where it is always hard work to find a new species that I have not yet seen. But instead of trying to find the very rare birds, I have now decided to consolidate - find easier birds that I have missed for some reason or the other.
The Fire-capped Tit is one such species - a bird I should have seen multiple times by now, but failed.
So I was happy to make my 1st acquaintance with this charmer at Duggalbitta, Uttarakhand last month.
