Kiriburu Meghahatuburu Trip

When we first planned our trip, I googled on Kiriburu tourism, but sadly, found almost nothing. Again, a Bengali book came to my rescue. If anybody has ever read Suchitra Bhattacharjee's Sarandaye Shoytan, they would know what a beautiful picture of this entire area she depicted with her words.
Kiriburu is a small hilltop tribal town in West Singhbhum, Jharkhand. It is situated on the border of Jharkhand and Odisha. Both Kiriburu and Meghahatuburu are part of the Saranda forest range. Saranda means 'land of seven hundred hills'. Given the place's geography (Saranda forest range is a part of Chota Nagpur plateau area), the name seems quite apt.

Karigar Haat, 2014

Your innate insecurity gets expressed through your possessive behaviour. Personally, I believe in the latter. I do not like to act possessive around the person I love. If I trust him, what is the point of being so insecure. He is mine anyway. But if there is not enough bond, that's a whole different story.
I H.A.T.E possessiveness. It pisses me off like anything. If you keep asking her/him about every single guy/girl friend they have, with  suspicious eyes, or act in a very weird passive aggressive way every time they look at the phone; well, then it's time to bid adieu. If you are not cool enough to handle a person, then you obviously don't deserve them.
At the end of the day, I love my freedom more than anything. I know many people who ask their partners before buying anything for themselves. Some people are so much in 'love'…
