Here Comes the Umbrella

It was a long, cold, lonely winter, and it felt like it’d been there for years..but then out came the sun and The Beatles said, “it’s alright.” Smile returned to people’s faces. The sun shone, and people sipped lemonade, but when came the rain, people ran and hid their heads, and The Beatles said, “when it rains and shines, it’s just a state of mind.”

These photos were taken during the months of August, September, October in Mcleodganj, Dharamsala. It was considerably cold throughout. People looked happy when the sun shone, rain always brought with it a bit of gloominess, and life got colder with the dark winter fog.  Just a state of mind? I can’t be sure.
Meanwhile, the cost of these umbrellas remained unaffected, ranging from 60Rs. to 250Rs.

    Hey, i guess i found you after a long time. Nice to see your blog posting on Vogue. I was in dharmshala about 20 days ago. Saw all the umbrellas, managed to see the Dalai Lama while he was leaving for delhi at the town square near the monastery. I don’t know where all you went but hope you got to see norbulingka. it’s a really awesome place to go to.

      Hey! Good to see you here. Yes..i went to N’lingka – amazingly done but the place in itself was kind of boring…maybe that’s because I had no purpose other than just seeing the place!
