Gadiara is a beautiful small town in Howrah district ,West Bengal. A good place to stay for a day or two. Last year I visited the place . It is situated at the confluence of the Hooghly and Rupnarayan rivers. I found the typical village atmosphere there. The river is extremely wide. There I had watched the 18th century british fort ruins ,light house,brick fields,paddy fields,boats,big ships,birds ,trees etc.etc. I made this painting from a reference photo I snapped there .
