Today Shillong is a blend of the divine and the mundane- remnant of the Raj, virgin nature, astounding ethnic colors, exotic orchids, cascading waterfalls, mysterious and sacred forest groves, unpredictable weather, an 18 – hole championship golf course, probably the best Chinese / Tibetan cuisine food east of Kolkata and of course growing unplanned urbanization.
