Artist's Description

Visited Pal Ewam Namgyal Monastic School in Pokhara, Nepal the other day. It was free time for the little monks and this is one of a number of images that stands out from my collection. These children come from very poor backgrounds. This is a boarding school for these kids from ages 5-17 years, who only see their parents once a year, and are apparently privileged to be spared the harsh lives they’d be forced to endure if they were to stay home. The living conditions are not the best, but they receive a decent education and learn how to handle themselves with dignity. It was a fascinating, yet bittersweet visit.
