Description

You think of a traveler as someone who is too restless to stay still, who always needs to be on the move, doing things, changing things, seeing things, learning things. Maybe that describes me to a point–I do tend to get antsy when I’m not making a difference in some way, and while I’m not doing stem cell research, I love nothing more than traveling all over the globe and taking pictures of new places. But to be honest, it’s not always restlessness I feel. Sometimes in my travels I find a place so stunningly beautiful, so remarkably enchanting, that I wouldn’t have any problem at all just staying there forever.

Bhaskar Chanda was born and raised in eastern India in the city of Kolkata. After completing his engineering studies from the Indian Institute of Technology, Bhaskar moved to Canada, where he received a Masters in Medical Science from the University of Alberta, as well as a PhD in Medical Biophysics from the University of Toronto. While currently an employee at the University Health Network (UHN), Mr. Chanda has a number of other interests and hobbies which occupy his free time.

Alberta  Rockies  (2007)   By  Bhaskar  Chanda     You  think  of  a  traveler  as  someone  who  is  too  restless  to  stay  still,  who  always  needs   to  be  on  the  move,  doing  things,  changing  things,  seeing  things,  learning  things.   Maybe  that  describes   me  to  a  point–I  do  tend   to  get  antsy  when  I’m   not  making  a  difference   in  some  way,  and  while   I’m  not  doing  stem  cell   research,  I  love  nothing   more  than  traveling  all   over  the  globe  and   taking  pictures  of  new   places.  But  to  be  honest,   it’s  not  always   restlessness  I  feel.   Sometimes  in  my  travels   I  find  a  place  so  

stunningly  beautiful,  so  remarkably  enchanting,  that  I  wouldn’t  have  any  problem  at   all  just  staying  there  forever.     That’s  how  I  felt  when  I  first  visited  the  Alberta  Rockies  in  2007.  From  the  sublime   peaks  to  the  lush  valleys,  the  range  is  a  wonderland  of  crystal  blue  lakes,  dense   green  forests,  waterfalls,  and  endless,  untamed  wildlife.  Just  a  short  day  drive  from   Calgary  and  Edmonton,  the  Rockies’  panoramic  vistas  are  literally  breathtaking.  All  I   could  think  was  thank  goodness  for  digital  cameras–I  couldn’t  possibly  have  carried   enough  rolls  of  film  for  the  amount  of  pictures  I  was  drawn  to  take.   While  there  are  all  sorts  guided  tours  on  horseback  or  in  low-­‐flying  airplanes,  I’m  a   DIY  kind  of  guy–I  had  to  get  out  there  on  my  own,  just  me  and  my  camera.     I  started  with  some  ice  climbing…       And  then  did  some  skiing…    

  In  the  end,  it  was  a  great  trip,  and  I’d  go  back  in  a  heartbeat!     Bhaskar  Chanda  was  born  and  raised  in  eastern  India  in  the  city  of  Kolkata.  After   completing  his  engineering  studies  from  the  Indian  Institute  of  Technology,  Bhaskar   moved  to  Canada,  where  he  received  a  Masters  in  Medical  Science  from  the  University   of  Alberta,  as  well  as  a  PhD  in  Medical  Biophysics  from  the  University  of  Toronto.  While   currently  an  employee  at  the  University  Health  Network  (UHN),  Mr.  Chanda  has  a   number  of  other  interests  and  hobbies  which  occupy  his  free  time.
