We moved to Chandigarh in 1958. I was 9+ and Deepak, my younger brother 6+.
We used to live in Sector 22, quite far off from Sukhna Lake. But it always had very special attraction for us – especially for Deepak, my younger brother. When we started to visit the lake, almost 60 years back, there was a small tree in the beginning of the lake. For many years now it is a fully grown and a beautiful and healthy tree and Deepak calls it Daddy 😊 Whenever we come to Chandigarh and go to the lake we hug this tree 🤗 Today morning was one such day…. divine morning ❤️❤️
I vividly remember a day, ages back, when I was still in school. One Sunday morning we (friends) were playing together and the sky suddenly got overcast, with thick black clouds. It turned dark. And we decided to walk to the lake😂 6-7 kms from our place. It was such fun getting drenched in the rain and playing and laughing and dancing together.
I don’t think anyone of us was carrying any money — The best things in life are free ❤️🙏
Sukhna is a beautiful lake and so well kept. The shining jewel of Chandigarh, the City Beautiful ❤️❤️ The city was planned by Le Corbusier, the famous French architect.
