I stayed with this family in Bhurung in the Annapurna region of Nepal while teaching for @camerasforasia. Somehow I knew there was a story behind the quiet stoicism of the father of my host. As we ate breakfast one morning, sipping chai and eating biscuits, I asked, with translation, about his life. He had served for the Indian Army for several decades and only returned to the village when he retired. He told me stories of incursions and artillery fire and mentioned places I knew. A picture came together of his fortitude in remote, cold and difficult places and in another country for another nation's army.
