I started my day by tripping and falling, saving my camera from destruction (not my pride however). Luckily, I was later able to meet and photograph a Tibetan monk who was a political prisoner in China for 20 years. He sipped his chai, I sat with my jaw probably hanging to my knees, and photographed him in the pauses of his life’s powerful journey.
(Over 110,000 Tibetans have left Tibet to seek sanctuary in other countries due to China’s occupation.)
It’s these beautiful people that we get to love and serve here in India.
