The air corridor crosses Meghalaya State, the abode of the clouds, before touchdown at Guwahati, capital city of the State of Assam, the largest among the seven sister States in the North Eastern parts of India.
Mountains that seemed to reach out to the sky ...
On the banks of the Brahmaputra, one of the largest Indian rivers that flows through Guwahati
It was difficult to get pictures, with sudden gusts of rain and fast changing light, but the riverbank was glorious!
A quick tour of the town and cricket, of course! Cricket flourishes throughout the sub continent

There was no time to explore further, to the Vashistha Ashram (hermitage) or the Famous Kamakhya temple of the Mother Goddess, which was closed for five days during our visit. Back to Mumbai, and there was a glorious sunset in the skies at 38000 feet, above the rain bearing clouds ..
7:45 p.m. Time to go to sleep :)
