Mountain road cricket

Just don't hit it into the valley just out of frame

Quite regularly, the Darjeeling region in West Bengal organizes a bandh, or strike, to show support for creation of a separate state called Gorkhaland. On those days, the usually choked, winding mountain road and rail tracks between Ghoom and Darjeeling are practically empty.

Perfect time for a pickup cricket game. Indians will play anywhere, after all.

Of course, on the other side of the road, the valley plummets hundreds of meters. Best not to swing for that side.
