This book is a sweeping volume of captivating true incidents arranged chronologically. Starting with my childhood (crawl, walk and run) development in a remote village.

There are chapters on my teenage, graduate schooling in the only American campus in the whole Southeast Asia. The looting on the train to Bombay, when my tickets for travel by ship to UK were robbed during severe Hindu/Muslim riots. The partition of India was the most cruel, vicious, and poisonous scorch earth policy, which sandwiched India between two fanatic hateful Muslim wings, speaking different languages. I was a non-violent Satyagrahi Student volunteer under Mahatma Gandhi, participating in his “Quit India” scheme. Yet I traveled like a stow-away sardine, along with 10000 British Soldiers who had to Quit under that very scheme.

Deep in the heart of the Himalayas, the ancient kingdom of Zanskar with its Tibetan Buddhist culture is isolated from the outside world by snow for nine months of the year. Olivier Föllmi has made numerous trips to Zanskar over the past twenty years. Journeying across the freezing terrain sometimes proved to be hazardous, even life-threatening; but his fascination for the region led him to return many times. The results of his travels are eloquently revealed in this book of breathtaking colour photographs. Zanskar’s extraordinary landscape, together with portraits of its people, provide a unique glimpse into an existence that is now changing as contact with the modern world increases. Complementing the photographs, delicate watercolours by Rapkar Wangchuk re-create the quintessential images of Tibetan Buddhism. A moving commentary tells the story of the author’s fascination with Zanskar and records the rites and customs of an exceptional society.
