  • In the summer of 2008, I visited this place called Harshil, Shivalik range of Himalayas, for my field study. I took this study further and made a small publication on the lifestyle of the Bhotiya tribe. I started this publication from their coming to India, settling down, till the present scenario.

  • Dwelling on the border of India and Tibet, these people became trades. For many years they carried out trade and hence their culture emerged from both from the Indian and the Tibetan culture. During India-China war some people came to India and some remained in Tibet.

    This project was a small publication on a scheduled tribe of north India called Bhotiya.






  • I stayed with the Bhotiya people for 10 days to study their lifestyle. I photographed and sketched some glimpses of their life.
