Guwahati -Assam Image Archives Kalpana Image Archives - Images from India

Guwahati is the capital of Assam state of India. I was very curious to go there, because I had heard so much about the city during my childhood travels to Alipur Dwar in West Bengal. In many ways, Guwahati is starting to look like all other big cities of India - lot of traffic, wide roads, by-pass bridges, malls, high rise buildings and brand name shops. In my pictures I have tried to catch the old Guwahati.

One morning I woke up early and went up the hill, past the hostels of Guwahati medical college to the TV Tower Hill and then came down on the other side, went through the medical college hospital, met a group of Bihari emigrants. The images on this page are from that early morning walk in December 2010.

Walking up the green hill with lush vegetation, apart from the houses of officials, there were also shacks for poorer persons. I was thinking that it must be beautiful to live there, even in poverty. Then I saw persons going up and down with bottles of water, and I changed my mind about the beauty of living there on the hill.
