Dhuska has a white stuffing of ground rice, which is very soft. It is fried, and tasted very good. It's perhaps like fried idli, although don't know how does that taste!

@Alpha Please throw some light (read Dhuska) here - kabhi toh khilaya nahin, isi liye tumhare muluk mein ja ke khana para.

Lesson to be learnt by @Alpha : Never, ever share Dadiji ki thekua with those jo usko khate bhi hain aur uske baad yeh sab batein bhi karte hain.

@adsatinder Send return air tickets for the next Dilli meet so that all the people can be given a lesson on how to eat Dadiji ki thekua and how to keep mouth shut after that (and hands clamped so that no such thing can be written).

Day 3 continued – Railway Bridge no. 27 and Kanti fall

After reaching Chandwa, we took a left turn towards Lohardaga.

763410


After some time, we entered the jungle through a check post.

763411


Soon we reached the first destination of the morning – bridge no. 27 on the railway line from Ranchi to Lohardaga.

763412


This is really an engineering marvel, and a beauty to see.

763414


763417


We hit the road again, and the camera could not be kept idle.

763419


763420


763421


After we reached this gate and took the diversion, we had to ask people about the direction to the fall. And always we were told to stick to the metalled road till it ends.

763422


763423


Finally we reached the end of the road.

763424


We could hear the gurgling sound of the fall, but there was no path available to go to it. Still we managed to go near the top of the fall manoeuvring on the hill.

763426


763428


763430


763433

Almost the topmost point of the fall.

The slope of the hill was so steep that we had to abandon the idea of going to the base of the fall. However, Javed, the driver, was quick enough to go there.

The route we undertook

But, one historical yet forgotten memorial was to be seen. We had a vague idea about where it could be located. We found out Gordon’s guesthouse near the railway station.

763491


On enquiring, he guided us to the right location.

The fountain commemorating the settlement of McCluskieganj.

We boarded the Shaktipunj Express in the afternoon to go back to Kolkata.
