Little Faces of Future : Haflong’s St. Agnes Convent

I was trying to stay away from posting any images on the page for sometime, but I liked how this picture that I posted on Instagram brought in some LIKES from some of the ex-students of this school. I accidentally also posted the picture on my twitter. So, well here is the picture in a better resolution.

 

This image was made when I visited the school on an event with Avantika’s NGO; St. Ages Convent School is truly a piece of history. But what interests me most other than the little cute faces of the little girls and boys is of course the vintage- colonial feeling the architecture of the school still retains. Here, is an image of little girls looking outside through the window. Clearly, I have disrupted their attention towards the ongoing lessons but luckily the teacher didn’t dash out of the class to whip me with her cane.

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.
