I hope Cassiope fastigiata of Ericaceae, the Himalayan heather
Really nice catch Alok ji. I was looking for this plant while on visit to Apharwat in Kashmir, but could not find it this time in flowering.

Yes, Cassiope fastigiata.
Thanks for sharing.
I found it in Valley of Flowers on way to Hemkunt Sahib at around
4000m asl in beginning of the month of July.

I would be better if you check webmail directly. One the mail is  safe, and not danger of loosing mails on your desktop if computer has some problem. I have resorted to webmails after nearly 15 years of using desktop downloads with Outlook express.
Web gmail is quite convenient, as also mails stay in one thread.
