Larger Picture

Here is this little girl who is struggling to carry the log home. But this is only part of the picture. The larger story is paragliding operators who have not only arrived in Sarangkot of Pokhara but are determined to clear the swathe of land conserved as community forest. Their modus operandi is simple: cut down the young trees and supply the wood to the villagers who conserved it and at a price which is down to Rs. 10 a load from Rs.80 previously. What is not in these pictures yet are foreign tourists who will be gliding down merrily ahead.

    Dear suresh, zZz, blue, DreamSky and dtuladhar,
    Thank you for taking time to comment. I appreciate. And yes, that’s true dust reside on camera censor can be a big nuisance sometime and no matter how I try to play safe, my cameras tend to get polluted by dust as need to use them every now and then in all sort of situation. I guess it’s time for me to get new DSLR ;)
