Nima Chering was the child who captured our attention, our cameras and [ although we might not concede ] our hearts as well for the short time we spent at the Sanga Choeling Monastery at Pelling, Sikkim, India. We did not get a glimpse of the Khangchendzonga Mountains but we did get enraptured by Nima’s antics. The route he walks to and fro for school is the very same route where we stopped multiple times for a break to gather our breath.
Not only did Nima pose patiently, by the end of it he also succeeded in testing our patience by not giving up trying to pose some more, every opportunity he got or could wrangle from us. I just could not stop clicking the button for his face was captivating – those eyes could have burned holes.
