Kokernag is a sub-district town and a notified area committee in Breng Valley (The Golden Crown of Kashmir), Anantnag district in the Indian administered state of Jammu & Kashmir. The etymology of the word 'Kokernag' is controversial and there are various theories and none has any conclusive historical proof. As per one such theory Koker means 'fowl' and nag means 'serpent'. The spring gushes out of the base of a thickly wooded hill from where it divides into channels, which resembles to the claw-foot of a hen, hence its name. The other theory is that the word Kokernag originates from Koh (Mountain) kan (from or under) nag (spring). Kokernag is at the height of approx. 2,000 m above sea level.

Being here in Senegal for this year means a lot to me, the house, the land of my parents, where many things are anchored, including certain values that have contributed to the development of the person I’m today. This is an outside perspective of the new Dakar Arena recently built by the actual government (not a politician).😅A good thing for present and future generations.
Here is an image shot during the sunset at Mt.Cook in summer. As the sun sets late night due to #summer , I had to wait a long time for this. Driving at least 400-500kms a day while touring the South Island and waiting till 9-10 pm for #sunset was a tough job. Formation of lenticular clouds over the mountains is always a sight to watch. Here is the tallest mountain of New Zealand, standing at 3724 meters ( I know its relatively small compared to the #Himalayas , but the view is damn beautiful )
