Samten Bhutia comes with a nepali film "Letter"







With the promo and the posters of the latest Nepali film "Letter", i am sure the film making in Sikkim is going to have a major change in approach. This Nepali film about the mind disease called "split personality"  with  a flavor of suspense and mystery is all about to be released. Uttam Pradhan and Bishal Chamling is the lead actor while Annie Zimba will be making her film debut. The film is directed by Samten Bhutia who also has penned the story and its screenplay. It is to be noted that Samten Bhutia had earlier acted in short English film Myth, made in Sikkim.

An UFO behind an aeroplane photographed at Delhi on October 7th, 2010

You can see the black spot at the tail of the aeroplane
I recently had a Delhi tour and had clicked many photographs of the places and one thing that wondered me the most was the frequent movement of an aeroplanes in and around the sky. I had taken many random shot of the aeroplanes and while checking out every photographs to my surprise in one of the photograph i came across an object hanging on the sky just to the tail of an aeroplane. I do not know what was that so i tried many things like increasing and decreasing the colour, brightness of the photograph and i could faintly see some circular object. Is that UFO? The photograph was clicked on October 7, 2010 from the terrace of a building at Vasant Kunj at around 10 am in the morning.

This is the increased and darkened photograph of the back side of the aeroplane

Delhi's Red Fort had a charm of old Mughal world.

Lahore Gate
I was at Red Fort after almost 14 years. This was the only place i had been in my Delhi tour in 1996. The small bazaar inside the Red Fort mesmerized me to the old Mughal world. Inside there was a museum that i do have a faint memory from my last visit and the Mughal Emperor throne to conduct a local bazaar.

I always wanted a knowledge house about Sikkim, its past, present and future. I do not know over the years how much did i succeed but my determination to let other understand my Sikkim is always giving me a push. with regards Shital Pradhan (himalayanreview@gmail.com)
