Happy New Year – 2007
I am going to go on vacation from tomorrow.Hence I wont be here for the new year. All I am going to say here…you guys have a rocking 2007. May all your dreams come true.
I am going to north east of India (specially sikkim) this new year. I am going to Sikkim and other places. Its a dream come true. I wil be blogging live (using my OperaMini) from where I am until unless I get out of mobile network. Check ‘ Where is Thejesh GN” to see where I am going.I hope all of you will have a nice time during the new year.
The thumb-shaped state of Sikkim is characterised by wholly mountainous terrain. Almost the entire state is hilly, with the elevation ranging from 280 metres (920 feet) to 8,585 metres (28,000 feet). The summit of the Kanchenjunga is the highest point. For the most part, the land is unfit for agriculture because of the precipitous and rocky slopes. However, certain hill slopes have been converted into farm lands using terrace farming techniques and is used for cultivation. Numerous snow-fed streams in Sikkim have carved out river valleys in the west and south of the state. These streams combine into the Teesta and its tributary, the Rangeet. The Teesta, described as the “lifeline of Sikkim”, flows through the state from north to south. About a third of the land is heavily forested.
The lofty Himalayan ranges surround the northern, eastern and western borders of Sikkim in a crescent. The populated areas lie in the southern reaches of the state, in the Lower Himalayas. The state has twenty-eight mountain peaks, twenty-one glaciers, 227 high altitude lakes, including the Tsongmo Lake, Gurudongmar and Khecheopalri Lakes, five hot springs, and over 100 rivers and streams. Eight mountain passes connect the state to Tibet, Bhutan and Nepal.
As you know I also participated in problogger group writing event. I got to lot many bloggers through this. I am yet to begin some kind of conversation with them. I will try to do that once I come back. I hope it wont be late.
P.S: One of my favorite cricketer Shane Warne is retiring. All the very best to him.
