A brief Himalayan conversation ('55 Words ' contest)
Singing monks splashed yellow and red paint over the huge stone Buddhas. Behind them, the Himalayas glowed blue-white in the early morning sunshine.
"Sir, careful of paint, sir," said someone.
"Are they singing Tibetan prayers?" I asked.
The monk laughed. "Is love song from Bollywood movie only, sir."
I'm sure the Buddhas didn't mind.
