Khirai, a small river

Bengal is probably the other name of beauty in simplicity. The poet has portrayed rural Bengal as as shy as newly married bride, as beautiful as a teenage girl.

On a lazy afternoon we decided to make a Trip to Khirai, a small village in Bengal, situated on the bank of the river of the same name.

The sun was still up when we started our journey. We reached Kharagpur railway station and took a local train to Khirai.

The River welcomed us. This river is mainly fed by rain water.  We started walking on the banks of the river.
