― William Shakespeare

On a windy & dusty Sunday, I made a trip to a place I had planned to visit since 2013.

What a wonderful world!

Tucked away in the hills of Sonapur (about 17 kms from Guwahati City) is a treasure trove of all things old & vintage. Under the tireless efforts of Mr Pickloo Deka over the years, flourishes his dream and hobby of collecting rare gems that occupy pages of history. Called the TREASURED WHEELS, it is his endeavour to collect and offer a peek to the glorious yesteryears to all the interested people of today & tomorrow. He says that he wants to leave behind glimpses of our rich history for the future generation, under one roof. (more…)
