Visiting Tagore Hill

Its been long since I’ve taken you around Ranchi.The reason being we’ve had very little time as Hubby’s busy with some big event coming up in his office.But this Sunday we managed to squeeze in sometime and visited Tagore Hill.This place is named after The Noble laureate Gurudev Rabindra Nath Tagore.Tagore hill, also known as Morabadi Hill, is a 300 feet altitude hill .The local history reveals that the hill has close relations with the Tagore family; it is assumed that the poet liked this hill due to its serene beauty and the extraordinary calmness and was a place for his literary work.

It was just one of those places where the moment you step into, you feel you are in a different world.The peace,the calm and quiet seep into your mind and body and one feels entirely relaxed.No wonder this place also appealed to Gurudev.The kids also loved the place despite the fact that there was nothing in it for them.But I think they ‘ve also learnt to appreciate beauty when they see it.
