I and my teammates consisting of forest range officer, junior engineers and driver were on excursion one fine sunday to Chamkhar chu and nearby small stream. The day was filled with joy. We collected fern and mushroom. We tried luck to bait trout. Not for killing and eating but for outlandish study by engineer. It was long wait sitting on the huge boulder eyeing to feel the jerk. There was no bite.

After that we went on to small tributary. We left no stone unturned in search of trout to see how really it look like. I heard, it is one among the most delicious fish. Finally, we got one. Ranger confirmed it to be snow trout. I photographed it.
In the meanwhile, I posed for photographs with fish on palm. I directed my driver to focus on trout on the palm with blur background. The fish was stifling without water. After few shutter sound, I said, "it is ok, enough. The fish is dying".

After awhile we took rest under the cool umbrella of huge tree. We drank Foster and juice to self refresh. I was going through the photos snapped during our course of exhaustive fishing.
'Where is my photo with fish', I enquired him. 'Here', he pointed to the photo below after scrolling few photos
|A gift or token of remembrance. Simply cool!!|
I was like WHAT?!!! after seeing the photo. He was simply smiling and said; 'keep it as a token of long remembrance sir'.
