Taken by Pema Tendup Lepcha, 12 years, Dubdi/Sikkim This is Passang Wongyal, 12 years. He is from a hindu-family and was named earlier Bhim Subba. When he joined 5 years ago the monastic school, he got the new name – Passang means Friday and Wongyal „blessed power“. His father died 7-8 years ago and his mother is quite struggeling with him and his elder sister, working under the NAREGA scheme. The headmaster calls him little naughty as his mind is more occupied with playing then learning.
