Photographer's Note

Prayer flags belong to the himalayan landscape, as much as mobile phones antennas belong to ours. Rather than distributing electromagnetic waves, they distribute prayers and mantras along the wind. Rather than helping people babble with each other, they help people stay tuned with their inner self and with the gods. While people here are concerned with bad consequences on their health if they leave in the vicinity of mobile phone base stations, people there plant as many as they can all around, knowing by tradition that they bring happiness, long life and prosperity to the flag planter and those in the vicinity.
