That visit to Sri Raj Rajeshwari Temple in Konnagar from Howrah–A short road trip

Though this is not my first visit to Maa Sri Raj Rajeshwari Tripur Sundari Temple in Konnagar which falls under Konnagar Municpality in Hooghly district, adjacent to Howrah district, West Bengal.
I can remember that last time I visited this temple with friends and that was a short road trip on motorcycle.

But, this time this road trip was altogether a family affair. A car was booked and we reached there at 5 pm.

  After puja in the temple, crossed the G.T. Road and sat on the ghats of  the River Ganges just in-front of the "(7) Saat Mahadev Mandir".  It was an awesome idea to spare time sitting on the ghat, eating 'Alu Kabli,Chaat followed by masala cold drink while watching the sun setting and the sun light becoming dim. It felt like the voltage of the Sun is reducing slowly and gradually by itself.
                   As a consequence, the birds are returning back to their nests for which the sound of their chirping coming out from trees increases rapidly. The baby crabs were also able to find their place among the hollows between the bricks of the ghat. Teenagers, Married couples, parents with their children and older peoples are coming on the ghat to enjoy this mesmerizing scenario of sunset.

I felt a bit jealous with the residents as they are lucky to have their home nearby to the temple and the ghat. They can spend their leisure time either coming to the ghat or sitting silently among the divine silence of the temple for hours and hours whenever they want.

If I had two extra hours in a day,I would......

Picture courtesy-Internet Now a days,every person's life is so busy and so hectic that we do not get time for other things.Even we do not get much time to complete our pending works on the same day or other day.In this way,the pending works get clotted and becomes a huge mountain to climb upon .          I was thinking that in these busy hours of work or study,if I get two more extra hours in a day, what will I do ?         Whether I will spend them in completing my pending works of getting a new Ration Card,as we have from shifted from the rented house to our own home on the other side of the town,or will I go to meet some of my friends and relatives with whom I never find time to meet,though they are in the same town .        I have got other options also to spend my time,like meeting and having fun with my old classmates hovering around Kolkata or visiting my old area & meeting those peoples who were with us in that rented colony since the time I opened my eyes as

कलकत्ता का प्रसिद्द बाबा भूतनाथ मंदिर और हावड़ा निवासी भक्त

कुछ ढूंढली यादें और कंप्यूटर में रक्खे हुए कुछ फोटो ने मेरा ध्यान आकर्षित किया! जैसे ही मैंने फोटो देखने के लिए खोला तो सहसा याद आगया के यह सारे फोटो 2012 के सावन के महीने की हैं! वह मेरा आखरी सावन था जब बाबा धाम से लौटने के बाद, आखरी सोमवार को मैं अपने दोस्तों के साथ कलकत्ता के निमतला समसान घाट स्तिथ बाबा भूतनाथ के मंदिर गया था! आखरी सावन इसलिए क्यूंकि 2013 में पिता जी के परलोक सिधारने के बाद; ना ही मैं बाबा धाम गया और ना ही सावन के महीने में भूतनाथ मंदिर! समय बीतता गया, संन् 2014 आगया और मैं फिर से उसी जगह खड़ा हूँ जहाँ मैंने खुद को छोड़ा था! आज उन्ही यादों और अनुभव को कुछ पुराने फोटो के जरिये आपके सामने ला रहा हूँ!

Viewing 51 Feet Tall Lord Shiva Statue at Bangeshwar Mahadev Mandir in Howrah, Eastern India.

One of it's kind in Eastern India, this 51 feet tall Lord Shiva statue was unveiled by Honorable President Of India Shri Pranab Mukherjee on Sunday, December 13, 2015. The President along with his team and Governor of West Bengal Keshari Nath Tripathi visited the famous temple ' Natun Mandir' aka ' Naya Mandir' which means 'Newest Temple' in English, i.e, Seth Banshidhar Jalan Smriti Mandir or Bangeshwar Mahadev Mandir in Howrah early morning on Sunday. FYI, the Shiva Temple rests in between Howrah Railway Station and Salkia's Bandhaghat area exactly on Salkia School Road which is both way connected to Kolkata either by road or by river through Golabari-Armenian Ferry Service as well as Bandhaghat-Ahiritola Ferry service too. It would hardly take an hour to reach the landmark if you are connecting the nearby dots I mentioned above during peak traffic hours. First Day of inaugurating the tallest ever lord Shiva in Eastern India at Bangeshwar
