Breathtaking Niagara Falls by Pooja (The Indian Traveller)


From the mouth of an elephant (not literally)

If something forces you to stay back home, sip mini-spring water bottles, cancel your Saturday night plans and tell the world how you feel ... there is no looking back.
River of milk is what I used to call it. Or more like a chunk of cloud, which magically transcends into a huge flow of milk, which when kisses the earth manifests into salty waters... not like those you witness on beaches. but those which are much more blue, more saline, more stinky if I may say so, yet so much captivating you want to be there, like forever.
You are standing in the lines which take hours to reach the cruise, there is humidity in the scorching heat, you almost give up with the thought of dehydration or even worse, but yet you do not give up. Seems more like waiting in queue for a religious place where every devotee has one goal, to catch the sight of the holy deity, in our case the humongous beauty Niagara Falls.

Niagra Falls described by an Indian

That crackling sound the water makes, any water body, the waves of the beach, the soothing sound the river makes, the drops of the rivulet or even pouring of water in a cup, it has a sound, or as I may put it, a different kind of music in it. But the waves of Niagara beat it all, they would resonate in your mind every time you think about that beauty. It's like nature has adorned Niagara with a crown, we call a rainbow.
Talking about the first attraction, MAID OF THE MIST
Wear a colourful poncho, which makes for a uniform cum protection with drizzles greeting you from everywhere. Get onto the top deck of the cruise, and viola the journey begins. In no time, the US-Canada border becomes one, water: in its purest form knows no boundary. And there you see, the mystic, gigantic yet spectacular Niagara Falls, which are literally “scattered”, as 3 different waterfalls.
One at the Canada side, one at the US side and the one in between.
Each fall has its own beauty like you literally want to get into the interior of the falls and surround yourself in the white heaven. Hold on, you literally get to drench in a white world, which you are slowly taken forward to, as your cruise moves a little closer to the falls and blank, you are lost... unsure if you are holding the rod tight enough to not fall down, unsure if the people who were standing next to you are still around. But you do not care for a second and want that feeling to never go. which does, after around 10 seconds. And you are back to where you came from.

How seven college students come up with a solution to save lives of people from Snakebites

This snake bites is one of the commonest-but-neglected public health worries.
