Sweetest smile in Sikkim.
He : Where are you from? Are you a research student?
Me: I’m from Kerala. No No, I’m here to see your beautiful
village and jungle.
He is from Lepcha community in Sikkim, I forgot his name. I
stayed in his village for two days. He invited me for tea. I had to
pass, because I just arrived and still has luggage on my back.
He: Kerala??? Wow!! My teachers were from Kerala. Mr. Thomas,
Mr. Issac. Probably they are not alive now. But I remember
their words and what they said about your place. It’s green like
I can’t believe, he still remember his teachers name, and was
very influenced by them.
Me: Of course. Our forest is very similar to yours, only the ferns
are very big here. So big! May the altitude.
I will visit your home, next time I see you.
