the Konkan Coast  is a rugged section of the western coastline of India. It is a 720 km long coastline. Throughout the coastal region, there is Organic Settlements of villages. most of the village are at a place where the river transformed into an ocean. the most region has mountains where valley are either river or backwater or beaches as shown above.

this is the kind of organic street patterns are forms due to the natural growth of the village. the houses are yet to be made traditional way using local material stone, mud and coconut tree. due to heavy rainfall it is always a pitch roof forming attic for a internal store area.

Little Buddha

On my way to the lavong monastery in Sikkim,  i met these 2 little kids- the little Buddha. People in Sikkim are very friendly and interactive. These kids insisted on guiding me to the other monastery. While on our way, we passed by a shop and i told the kids to pick up anything they would like to eat, as a token of thanks. Further on the way, these kids brought 3 packets of drinks with their own money and handed me one. When asked why did they buy 1 for me, they said since you paid last time, it’s our responsibility to return the favor. It amazes me how such young kids can have such mature thinking. This truly proves that Bhutan is indeed one of the world’s happiest countries.
