Life is not meant to be stagnant, it moves on through our experiences and memories. How enriched one life depends on how profound their experiences and memories are. There are many ways to experience life, one among them is Travelling, undeniably. To me, traveling through the Himalayan landscape and villages is a profound experience. Staying in their little homes amid mountains, eating and spending time with the humble village people and the magnificent landscape is always very memorable.
I usually prefer to travel the Himalayan ranges in March or early April for two reasons – exotic weather and free from tourists. During these crisis times, being quarantined at home and my travel plan to Spiti got canceled, I greatly miss my Himalayan trip. Hence, I browsed my works from my Sikkim trip a couple of years back and it brought back the fond memories of the travel – the weather, the humble people I met, the remote places I visited and stayed, the food I ate and indeed the magnificent landscape. I felt good and thought of sharing my memories through these images.
These images are part of my on-going project “Portrait of India – A Personal Revelation”.
