Sillery Girl
My trigger happy ego turned curious about this cute little girl while she was playing with her mates on the walking path (not a street of course) in Sillery village. I snapped her activities till I assessed the amount to be enough. This one is my best choice. I liked the expression in her eyes.

“Sillery” is a cool mountain village nestled amongst Himalayan hills. The name represents a plant named so, that grows there abundant. It’s only a 4 KM. trek from Pedong which is on the ancient Silk route.

We spent a long two hours in that village and interacted with the residents. The people here belong mostly to the Lepcha community and a few Nepalees. Pedong is an upcoming tourist spot in West Bengal and Sillery is one village in their site seeing list.

The kid’s eyes appear to be squinted but it’s only an apparent manifestation. Because of the wide nasal bridge of childhood the eyes appear so. It gets corrected as the child grows. It manifests more in the mongoloid faces.
