    Gangtok the capitol of Sikkim. Two years ago I went for seeing the beauty of hills & natures. One morning when I leave hotel suddenly I saw back yard of our hotel window a old lady trying to ignite a small fire pot. I felt interest and took this snap. This snap is one of my favorite snap. When I see this one I can feel the smell of nature. Verity of colors of life... peace, passion & zeal ..!!!

    I love Your Shot photographer Shannon Hunt's comment: "This image is so rich in colors and content Amar. It unfolds such a lovely story of life in Gangtok. Every part of the frame gives me beautiful clues that show me how this lovely women goes about her day. From the sheets hanging on the clothesline to the dog sleeping so peacefully, it all help me create a story in my mind showing me the daily life of this elderly women preparing the fire in the early morning hours."
