Photographer's Note

Simla has a natural ice skating rink...the only one of its kind in India it seems. Despite global warming, deforestation and other natural phenomenon designed to defeat this activity the rink freezes over and allows the kids to skate for at least 2 months during their winter holidays.

Like the rest of India everything is thrown together...novices skate with experts...figure skaters practise their art even as ice hockey games threaten to decapitate them.. speed skaters weave through slow learners ....and no one thinks that anything is amiss.

We may not produce world class but we do certainly have a happy skating community here !!!!

Enjoy Himachal!
