Little Mountain Of Mine

‘Cause the sun set down on me, you turn your head and slowly start to breathe. Like the common bonds on carbon buried deep, I’m the shadow of the long forgotten dream. But I, I will watch over you, I know your heart is true, little mountain of mine…

I was lucky enough to click this cheerful fella or pahari manush as the himchalis are referred to affectionately, on my last trip to Himachal Pradesh, India. We were making up the climb to the summit of Bijli Mahadev near Kullu in our car, and stopped by for lunch at a very small dhaba built around a little waterfall with freezing cold water trickling down rigorously. This guy happened to be the owner of the same and served us with a very nice home cooked meal. The thing that made me click him was that joyous and peppy nature, the smile didn’t want to leave his face and I guess I was able to catch the expressions and freeze that moment okayishly well with this shot. Oh and those beautiful lyrics belong to the song called Lullaby by The Acorn. How I absolutely love that piece of art right there!
