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.
