This book is about my travels and our stay in Bhutan for three years.My paintings are included in the book.
How would you answer the question: Would you like to go to Bhutan with me? That was how our adventure began in November,1984. Even though,we planned to leave for Bhutan in October, The plans had to be changed,when, Indira Gandhi,the Prime Minister of India at the time ,assasinated on our departure date. We had to wait until the green light was given for our trip. As you know,Bhutan is a landlock country and to get there,you had to go through India at that time. When people talk about Bhutan was once called the Shangri-la, they are not exaggerating. The Country is between the Young Himalayan Mountains, that change color every hour of the day. Thimpu and Paro are situated in the valleys with lush greenery. It is difficult to know which season and climate it is. Unmarred by modernization and pollution, those valleys shelter rare flower and animal species.. The only feeling you get is enchantment.
