Village Giabong

Village Giabong, Ropa Valley, Distrct Kinnaur, H.P.

A 5th standard classroom of a government school doubles up as a village bar at night. Chulli (apricot wine) and freshly slain-freshly cooked goat meat laced with red-hot chilies on the side.

Astounding? Incredible? Nope.

Possible. In a school where kids are taught breaking windowpanes is a form of fun …in a state where school infrastructure lies crumpled in fat bureaucratic files, anything is possible.
