Icicles are brilliant weapons. They are strong and sharp to pierce through human flesh and do not leave back any fingerprints as they melts into water. Or at least this is what the suspense movies portray.
It had been a while since I saw Icicles out in the open nature. I got lucky when I spotted them enroute to Bumla Pass in Arunachal Pradesh, North East India. The dropping temperatures and the biting cold winds had ensured that the melting water turned into sharp icicles.
These icicles seemed to weave a nice and interesting blanket around the snow covered and some non-snow covered brown rocks. It’s colourless formation also seemed to form a nice contrast against the white surroundings and the clear blue sky.
The Icicles were so inviting that me and my friends got down from the warmth of the car and decided to play a war game. Each of us got us a nice solid icicle and indulged in a near true sword fight.
