Patratu. The decaying ruins of a once- grand industrial town. Surrounded by hills. A dam  ,a huge lake.The lukewarm breeze of late February. The beautiful Patratu Lake.Boating in the country boat of Safiullah Ansari ( Chhotu). And the eternal sound of silence and the primitiveness of unspoiled beauty. With such beauty around us, do we really have to look further?
Far,far from the maddening crowd…on a sunny February Sunday.
