Little Buddha

On my way to the lavong monastery in Sikkim,  i met these 2 little kids- the little Buddha. People in Sikkim are very friendly and interactive. These kids insisted on guiding me to the other monastery. While on our way, we passed by a shop and i told the kids to pick up anything they would like to eat, as a token of thanks. Further on the way, these kids brought 3 packets of drinks with their own money and handed me one. When asked why did they buy 1 for me, they said since you paid last time, it’s our responsibility to return the favor. It amazes me how such young kids can have such mature thinking. This truly proves that Bhutan is indeed one of the world’s happiest countries.

Going Organic, Going Healthy

Sikkim – India’s first organic state

which farmer doesn’t care about the money through mass production and think about the health of the people ? In Sikkim the farmers are not having any thought of using pesticides in the practice of farming. So all the local fruits and vegetables we gets in the state are 100% organic. It is healthy practice but in front of high demand the low production leads to high value of the products and we can easily see that in Sikkim.

these are the some of the flower exhibitions picture on the declaration day of Sikkim as a first organic city of India at Gangtok. I tried one organic orange there and i could actually make a difference with the one which we get in other urban cities.

 

The peace of roaring colors

 

Rumtek monastery,

one of Gangtok’s most well known landmarks perches solemnly with its wings bursting forth with colours aplomb. A contrasting cocktail of psychedelic patterns with its overall tranquil countenance.
