Sleepy Windmills of Frasergunj

Sleepy Windmills of Frasergunj
Frasergunj is a beach town in South 24-parganas district, West Bengal. Other than the busy fishing harbor if anything attracts you there that has to be the long queue of sleepy windmills near the beach. Although India is the world's fifth largest wind power producer, unfortunately, my state West Bengal is nowhere in the scene despite its favorable geography, while leading states are Tamil Nadu, Gujarat, Maharashtra etc. As a prime obligation to this green planet let us focus more and condition our minds towards different renewable sources of energy. Amen.

    1. Diamond harbor is roughly mid-way between Kolkata and Frasergunj... it's adjacent to Bakkhali :-)

    1. Yes you guessed it right Maniparna.... it was a motorcycle trip covering Bakkhali, Gangasagar, Digha :-)
      Henry Island was the worst thing in that trip and other than people struggling in mud-walks and yellow/blue crabs there was nothing to photograph in Henry island :-(
