Photographer's Note

This is the Neelkanth Mountain from the Garhwaal region of the Himalayas. The name suggests Lord Shiva, the god who, according to Hindu mythology, drank all the poison that came from the sea along with immortalising nectar. His throat turned blue with the poison, hence the name Neel (blue) Kanth (throat). The mountain also looks somewhat like the map of India (with a few liberties of course)!
