Protected Freedom

TROLLEY N-0326I still remember going to this trip with one of my wedding photography clients who was friends with an Army officer. He took both of us on a trolley car ride around Haflong town on the hundred years old Meter gauge railway.

Even though the pace of the trolley car and the beauty of the place made me feel elated, I still remember how the presence of the guards reminded me that there could be danger.

This Hundred years old Railway system that used to run between Lumding and Karimganj had been the lifeline for so many natives of the hilly area. Despite its rich past, the railway line has not been given the status of a heritage by authorities instead the tracks are being removed gradually.
