Ground Control to Major Tom

satellite dishes at Nepal Television

This picture was taken during our short visit to Nepal Television during MSNG Kathmandu. The visit to the state owned television station was quite insightful as we got to know that the TV station still used VHS tapes and technologies from late 90s and early 2000s to operate. Though there have been plans on upgrading the equipments as Nepal Television plans to operate full HD by the end of 2018, it still looks a far fetched dream to me.

The first Television station in Nepal, Nepal Television serves as a pioneer in Television and News broadcaster in the country. I would certainly be glad if they improved upon their services and have their equipments upgraded as soon as possible.

Brilliant Bremen

Bremen, a small and beautiful city in the Northern Germany. Taken during our trip to Bremen last year, we got to visit few of Bremen’s landmark. Our visit to Radio Bremen was quite productive as we got to get hands on experience on how a major media house works in Germany. I’d definitely want to visit the city sometime later in my life.

Illusive Ilam

Took this photo while walking towards the Ilam view tower on the top of the hill. I was waiting for the fog to cover the whole hill while it just blew over the top. To be inside the chilly fog while exploring Ilam was one of the best feelings of the school trip. The staircase to the top seems to make the landscape even more appealing with the yellow paint over its railings.

Though the fog didn’t let us get the proper view of Ilam bazar, the very same fog did create a breathtaking feeling for us to get lost into. East never ceases to amaze me!

Ilam – Where the Tea Comes from

Goodmorning folks, here’s a pic from Ilam, the tea capital of our small himalayan country. Known for its exquisite tea gardens, this eastern town didn’t fail to mesmerise me with its constant foggy weather and delicious tea.

I would definitely recommend a visit to Ilam for its serene landscapes as it would surely serve as a perfect getaway for a day or two.
