Pictures : Snowfall in the Himalayan town of Shimla – Part II

After sharing the first batch of photographs taken in the beautiful snow-covered city of Shimla, I’m back with more!

Snowfall in the Himalayan town of Shimla - Part I

Today, Im sharing pictures from January 2013, when Shimla received massive snowfall. These are from the first day when, unfortunately, the winter wind destroyed my most colourful umbrella. My friend, Asheesh Mehta, came to my rescue and accompanied me with his umbrella while I clicked these pictures.

Despite receiving stark criticisms and threats for sharing a few wintery photographs from my friends living in the plains – the temperature is touching 45 degrees celsius in some places – I bring you these pictures from the freezing winters to the boiling summers!

Hope you like them.
