What I did not capture was the immigrant laborers toiling away breaking stones for making roads. They come here from as far as Bihar, Orissa and West Bengal to make a living.
What I did capture was the rosy picture of life in the mountains and not the toil. So forgive me for a very one sided view of life.
How did they ever get up there?
Life does seem to be getting better. One of the ladies spoke English quite well. That may not be the indicator, but the overall lifestyle and well being is.
and yes… they do serve alcohol : ) and no we didn’t have any!
