Barabanghal village, Kangra

Barabanghal village, District Kangra, Himachal Pradesh

My eyes saw what was in front of me—a father and son standing under a tree in a remote Himachal village. However, art sees things this protection-seeking clutch of the coatlapel and stories hidden in the creases and folds.
