“Clouds come floating into your life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to your sunset sky.” “When the sun has set, no candle can replace it.” “Dusk is just an illusion because the sun is either above the horizon or below it” this word of the sage poet RN Tagore becomes more meaningful when you set on sunset cruises on backwaters of Kerala.
