Photographer's Note

This is at Phensang monastry something like 40 kms from Gangtok capital of Sikkim. This monastry was built in 1741 - got destroyed by fire and was rebuilt in 1947. The scene is just after the prayers when all big and small lamas sit in row with their wooden plates awaiting their turn to get fed. The chief diet is of rice which is doled out from a wooden cart.
