Sure, will post them soon - would be a nice contrast being in BW and from ages ago.

Look forward to your Sibsagar travelogue - there are actually many places in Sibsagar of historical/cultural importance. The Shiv-sagar (which lends its name to the place) & the temple adjacent to it + palaces/monuments of the Ahom kings. If possible and time permits, do post some snaps from the ONGC colony there.

@Thanks, Joy. I am sure this would be a nostalgic read.

Here is one snap from our Kaziranga trip sometime in the early 1980s. Shows us watching the one-horned rhino of Kaziranga.

Pardon the poor quality as it was an old B/W snap, which I photographed using my cellphone camera (quicker than using a scanner).

I found more snaps, but they focus more on the tourists (us) than the place.

Thanks for sharing this classic image Supreme, that black & white era was special in so many ways.

And then the Burapahar road did not exist, we had to drive down a narrow road down below.
