In India, we call our soldiers Jawaans. Jawaan is also a hindi/urdu term for ‘young’. I wouldn’t say young quite suits this gentleman over here, but let’s just roll with it for now… He was taking a picture for one of the touring families over there.
This was taken in the Sai baba temple up above the tsongmo lake in Sikkim. This was also the second time I was there, this time after ten years (nothing to do with the temple though). The last time I was there (around the same time of year), we were knee deep in snow. This time there was none. Global warming is taking its toll I guess.
