Having always loved Japanese woodblock art, something had to rub off on me. This is a batik painting of a precarious Monsoon bridge made of logs near to Kapkote which is rebuilt every year as the water rises and the river grows too high to walk through. Men and women stagger across all day during the summer months carrying loads on their backs. And it isn't easy- I've done it myself many times, carrying a heavy backpack on the way to the mountains, praying to the Gods of the Ganges that I don't fall in.
