Stare. Stare into the eyes and feel the wisdom that this old man has amassed in his long blissful life.

We met this old Chepang man on our way to Siraichuli hills in Chitwan. With his incoherent voice he told us he was well above 100 years of age and judging by his frail
limbs and teethless gums, we believe he was telling the truth. Accompanied by his old wife, a young daughter and few grandchildren he was busy drying out seeds. We
tarted a small conversation with the man and took few pictures of him and his family. This brief encounter where the old man shared some of his funny life stories
was one of the refreshing and memorable part of the doomed trip 🙂
