wow its beautiful keep it up.........------............
Well... I came across this blog while doing some research. It was amazing to realize that how immediate is the connection between one's roots and oneself. It reminds me of home and gave me a chance to refresh the sense of deep concern and love for my hometown - Chopal. Love the place, man!
I like the way you have illustrated facts and figures. There is, for sure, an immense need for creating an e-awareness of the place which deserves all that its being neglected and being taken to be granted for. It's an encouraging move.

Wish you all fortunes, dude.
