The Tawang monastery is one of the largest ones on Asia. A cold rainy afternoon there introduced me to this young monk/lama. There seemed a lot of pain in his eyes,as if it longed for someone..as if it had waited for years and is ready to wait longer still..so full of questions yet tranquil to the core. But such composure doesn't come without shyness. Luckily for me, he did allow me to get a shot. I had to wait for it..so I guess has he and will for what i know not of... The Wait !
