People are cynical about things that they do not know or do not fully understand. Cynicism is also a manifestation of fear. Most prefer to shoot down things they don't understand with a sarcastic retort rather than try to ask questions and understand them better. But then, villagers have a sense of curiosity that beats this sarcasm.
We came across some juveniles in the Himalayan village of Sari. They were intrigued by us gazing heavenward with field glasses.

One of them mustered courage to ask us for the glasses. @kcmouli and I lent ours and they were simply blown away by the sight of what they saw.

Here’s one of my old pieces from 2011 when I just started to draw. As you can see I don’t really color as much anymore. On a side note, i drew this drawing because of my ethnicity; Hmong. If you don’t know what Hmong people are, I usually explain it like this; we are the native americans of China. Or we’re asian gypsies. Being Hmong has definitely impacted the way I look at my life and even my identity. I don’t know how to speak Hmong, which alot of people my age do. I could never really be in the in crowd of the hmong people in school because I didn’t speak the language. I felt like an outsider. But it taught me that not all my friends have to be cousins. Being an outsider has led me to venture into hardcore/punk and to have the friends that I have now. Being Hmong has taught me who I am ethnically, but being an outsider has given me resilience. #hmong #asian #sewing #newyear #mountainpeople #leafblower #strawhouses #mattmouart

The world reflects His beauty, the flowers in splendor dress,
The colors of the rainbow His promises impress;
The great height of the mountains show forth His steadfastness,
Let every eye be open to see God's faithfulness!

There’s some good left in this world, Mr Frodo, and it’s worth fighting for.

Like Denali.

A group of pals took a weekend trip from Edinburgh to this beautiful beach bothy nestled in a scenic bay. Peanmeanach bothy was from a long deserted village last inhabited by the McQueen family. After a 3 hour walk past a herd of deer we skinny dipped in the sea and enjoyed some warming pasta. In the evening we shared whiskey with some fellow bothy-ers by the evening fire. A perfect trip in the Peanmeanach bothy enjoyed by all.

Bulak- Nose ring worn on the lower part of nose which covers the lips are very rare to see now. This was one of the traditional jewellery of Garhwal.

I met her on the way to Gangotri while she was waiting for her bus.

It's been cold the last few days in the Blaeberry Valley! The kind of weather to snuggle up with a warm mug of tea, a good book (or an entire season of Game of Thrones) in a cozy cabin. Hmm. Cozy cabin. We have one of those... Need a vacation, anyone?! Happy Thursday, folks!

Come let's stay here! Come let's sit here staring at the fields of love and labour. Come let's leave the life we knew so well and embrace the unfamiliar. Come for we have packed ourselves in tiny compartments and now it's time to unfold! Come let us LIVE once before we can open our eyes no more! .

Can't stop gushing over these old spaces painted anew in the villages of uttarakhand! These are sustainable structures best suited for mountains and it's cold climate and snow. These houses were built to provide a home for families, shelter for animals and store house for grains and food ration. .
If u can, live here for whatever duration you travel. It's worth your time and money. Experience this!
@greenpeopleind contact them for more info
