The moment I set eyes on the temple, even from afar, it set my heart racing. I was awed by the simplicity yet complexity of the architecture and the overall look of the temple. Was told that this place is rich in vibrations. Did my part, bought a puja thali and stood in the queue... Loved the concept where everyone... More

One fine day I landed in Kolkata, from the hills of Sikkim. I was staying at my Maternal Uncles place near Tollygunge. I had read the "The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna' and was eager to see Dakhineshwar...to reminisce Thakur's life. So I dragged my reluctant Mama to Dakhineshwar in the morning. It was a little misty when we reached the... More
