Twelfth Mile is an extension of myself, my life, my home. Hello, I am Kabir Pradhan and grew up in a small town in the Himlayan foothills of Kalimpong. It’s a sleepy little town with beautiful people, landscapes and weather (minus the monsoons). Outside the main town is the village Twelfth Mile – it’s where I grew up, the place I call home and the only place where I shall eventually retire and rest.
Growing up was real good fun – hiking, trekking, camping and if it weren’t about doing these things, it was also about being able to roam freely and being free. With my cousins and friends, we’d climb trees, hunt birds with catapults, run our dogs, fish in the little streams (and yes many a time we did catch crabs as well), sit under the open sky, play the guitar, star gaze and so much more. We were always outdoors and am thankful that then technology wasn’t popular, as it would not have allowed me to have this wonderful childhood and growing up days.
This blog – Twelfth Mile is an extension of my travel experiences that I would want to share with you as I have since my growing up days been very appreciative of nature, adventure, culture, people, history, heritage, art and so much more.
