Aani Child in Tashi Chhime Gachhal Monastery

Tashi chhime Gachhal Monsastery is located in Bigu village of Dolakha, which was built 75 years ago, it is one of the largest Gumba in Nepal. A 10 years old Sonam appears lost in thought during her first day at the Tashi Chheme Gumba in Bigu. She is one of 12 children who entered the nunnery last month.

  2. I don't much know about the cultural logic behind such traditions, but I think compelling such small innocent children into this so-called 'nunnery' (or whatever) is grossly inhuman. It is a case of human rights violation and such traditions should be abolished.
