“HIMALAYA is a fable, that we heard whispered in our ears while hiking through the mountains.

“Himalaya” (हिमालय) literally means “abode of snow”. And this range actually is home to nine of the ten highest peaks on Earth, including the highest, Mount Everest, which is called Sagarmatha in Nepal and Chomolungma – The Goddess Mother of Earth – in Tibet. It is also home to thousands of people, stretching through five countries: Nepal, India, Bhutan, China (Tibet) and Pakistan. Three major rivers in the world — the Indus, the Ganges and the Brahmaputra — originate in the Himalaya.

HIMALAYA is femme fatale, like a mother or a lover, embracing and raising, taking care of you, challenging and rewarding, letting you go and then waiting for you to come back. Because you definitely will.

HIMALAYA was written during the three-week hike in the mountains. Later it was edited from the material, gathered during the hike.”

“Daily life in the Indian holy cities of Rishikesh, Haridwar, and Devprayag. This region lies in the foothills of the Himalayas where the Ganges River descends from the mountains. I visited not knowing what to expect, and I was both awed and saddened by the experience. The beauty of nature and the Hindu ceremonies contrasted with the poverty and suffering on the streets. The people I met had a high-spirited resilience that seemed to stem from surviving and maintaining their devotion through a challenging life.”
