India: Rangdum, Padum

Breathtaking photographs and commentary by Sajith after a trip to Rangdum and Padum. “A hundred pictures not taken. Like those animals scuttling away from the bus. Like the mostly arind and sometimes icy and sometimes green landscapes. Mountains. Like Tenzin the lama I met when wandering around Padum. Like the old man Tenzin I met at Padum. He says he is a compounder and the hospital, and grins widely.”
