By Nandakumar Narasimhan I have always been fascinated with the hardy people of the Himalayas and their ability to battle some of the harshest winters on the planet. Paradoxically, the cold winter only seemed to make the people warmer in their care and hospitality. Picking up the camera for shooting was very often the last […]
