man paints monastery before dalai lama arrival in tawang

tawang | arunachal pradesh, india | 2009


our trip to tawang was a few weeks before the dalai lama was to visit the town. this is the first place where dalai lama had entered india after he fled from tibet. the atmosphere was one of celebration where everyone seemed to be preparing for some festivity with monasteries getting repainted and everyone in the fervour of a preparation.
this young lad was glad painting the walls of a monastery in the town.
