She is Norkila..!!
the Eldest of the Third Generation of The Joint Family who runs the Sherpa Hotel at Rimbick..!!
One has to stay with them while coming down from a trek to Sandakphu.Hew parents are in the US and she studies in Darjeeling and has come down to her family in Rimbick to celebrate the New Year Party.
She is a sweet little lady and this expression of hers in the pic is the outcome of a fight the pet dogs of them were having and she was just watching them before she shoted to them..
This is an impromptu photograph taken with a 210 mm zoom from a good distance. She was totally oblivious of me taking the photograph and got very shy on realising I was clicking her from a distance.

Nice capture and a smooth flowing note.
Expecting some clear sky photos of Sandakphu trek trail on coming days.

The girl's face emerges from the darkness, it's well seen and shot from you .... clever way to present this portrait, I like it.
Have a nice weekend,dear Indranil
