19-Sikkim-fire-boys

Taken by Nowraj Gurung, 13 years, Dubdi/Sikkim The young monks in Sikkim have to waer the robe only for school and special occasions. Rest of the time they dress in ordinary clothes, being something like a „part-time monk“. They decide only after age 18 wether they want to become a monk. Then they have to join the Sheda-college and pass special exams.
