In quest of exploring an almost untouched (atleast I thought so) state of North east, I headed to Meghalaya this March. Meghalaya indeed turned out to be beyond magnificent but not that untouched as I thought it to be. It seemed like it appropriately gets its due attention, neither too much, nor too less. And so it has been able to maintain its unadulterated rawness which I crave for during my travels.

Meghalaya undoubtedly appeared as an abode of clouds where clouds would host you so well that you will feel one with them. Clouds treat your eyes as far as you can see, touch your soul with loving rains and roar out loud to make their presence felt all the time. It is one such state which has definitely blown me over. Don’t believe me? I’ll let the photographs do the talking then.
