McLeod Ganj for me will always be McCloud Ganj… this small town nestled high in Indian Himalayas is after all cloud covered much of the time. But also McLeod Ganj is home to the Tibetans in exile, dreams and prayers fill the air as a people led by the Dali Lama hope to one day return home. So again, the cloud for me always symbolic with dreams and perhaps prayers too, comes to mind. I like to call the place McCloud Ganj…

I was there to convalesce and feeling weak i didn’t have much energy for anything, even photography… However, the night before i left, feeling better and hanging around the town square, buzzing with life as the weekend Punjabi tourists filled the night air with noisy excitement, a flash of colour caught my eye and out came my camera.  Most of the above photos were made in a burst of about 10 minutes as i walked through town.

    I was there too at the same time in McCloud Ganj but didn’t capture anything like this. You have given me new insight into a place which was a highlight of my travels in India. Thanks for sharing.
