Thursday Doors


On the border between Manipur, India and Myanmar there is a little town called Moreh. This is the local supermarket, a wooden building with plenty of ventilation and wooden shutters to close the shop. The door is rather nondescript, I’m afraid.


This door is a lovely shade of blue. In the road outside there is a design drawn in chalk powder to celebrate Pongal, the South Indian Harvest Festival. Strange that this is North East India, not Tamil Nadu.

More basic wooden doors in Moreh. The houses are rather ramshackle, but I like the fringe of sweeping brushes on the roof of the first house.


This is my favourite door of this week’s posting. It is the Salvation Army’s “Destitute Boys’ Home” in Moreh. It has been painted blue, but it’s metal, not wood.

Maverick doctor with 40 years experience, I reduced my NHS commitment in 2013. I am now enjoying being free lance, working where I am needed overseas. Now I am working in the UK helping with the current coronavirus pandemic.


  1. I do like that first photo, though, even if the door is “nondescript”. I’d call it “unassuming” 😉
    Hmm do you know if that fringe on the roof has a functional purpose?
