Memories of someone dear, emotions hidden in the crypts of our hearts and sometimes, just unadulterated awe at the beauty of the view itself. A sunset can be all this and so much more than a smartphone's camera can capture. A Jackson Pollock of colours at once, and at times a steady montage of shades of red and orange melting into each other, sunsets are timeless and look beautiful, every day of the year. While the view may be immaculate from your own secret spot in a special corner of the balcony you like best, there are some places in India known particularly for how well they show you the sunset. Here are five of them best suited for the curtain call on a long day, where a glorious sun bidding you adieu is all yours to watch.
