Photographer's Note

Rinchenpong, Sikkim
Rinchenpong is situated in the western part of Sikkim at an altitude of approx 5000+ feet above sea level. Apart from its historic presence, this place has monastary where you may see Buddha in his Ati Buddha form embodying male - female unified power. From this you also get to see a panoramic view of the enormous Kanchenjungha range. This place also makes up as the starting point for many western Sikkim trek routes.

This photo was taken from outside a bamboo gate of a primary school in the locality. These local urchins were playing in the small school playground and the moment they saw us with our cameras they gathered near the gate but shied away from the cameras. It took me sometime to befriend them and take photographs.
