Carrom (also known as Karrom) is a "strike and pocket" table game of Eastern origin similar to billiards and table shuffleboard. It is found throughout the East under different names though most non-eastern people know it by the East Asian name of Carroms (or Karrom). It is very popular in Nepal, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and surrounding areas. In South Asia, many clubs and cafés hold regular tournaments. Carrom is very commonly played within families and other functions. Different standards and rules exist in different areas. A popular variant of the game called Duboo is played mostly in Karachi the largest city of Pakistan.

Monks in bright red dresses playing a game of Carrom somewhere high up in the mountains, what a gorgeous sight. The monks are great and the landscape very impressing.

A nicely composed shot with a marvellous sense of depth and a very interesting and colourful foreground subject. Those red robes really add dramatic colour, and the game itself has a pleasing daily life element. You captured the player on the verge of making a move - good timing! Thanks for interesting note, too.

Namaste Dwaipayan - A scene of daily life but in an exceptionally lovely location. The colourful robes of the monks stand out in stark contrast to the delicately coloured scenery. A life far removed from my own, both in location and lifestyle and to a point so much less hectic. Wonderful shot. Warm regards Rosemary

Hello Dwaipayan ,
An outstanding capture of these red monks playing Carrom , the contrast with the beautiful moutains and slouds in the BG is amazing .

une photo intéressante, la scène se déroule dans un cadre agréable; les habits rouges créent un bel impact.

An interesting pic. Monks playing carrom. Not a usual sight but definitely not unusual as humans. The colour contrast, light management is too good. The surroundings are so serene
sandpiper (6788) 2013-07-22 3:58
great composition, these guys look like they are concentrating hard
Cricri (120143) 2013-07-26 11:29
Intéressante et scène , dans un joli environnement, la concentration des moines sur le jeu, la bonne lumière et le flash rouge de leurs tenues, belle présentation
macjake (68458) 2013-07-26 11:42
I have to say, your photo's keep getting better and better, and more and more interesting!
one of y our best scenes here.
I would certainly not expect to see such monks playing games in a photo like this...not a typical scene we see but perhaps its a typical daily activity.

Looking at this pic I think I'd like to be sitting at a table next to them sipping hot coffee:) Settings like this make me most relaxed and happy. Gorgeous place!
