A moment of treasure

Time has changed us but I still believe there are things implanted in our DNA, hence most of us feel a sense of tranquillity and peace in the wilderness. After watching this documentary filmed by Christoph von Fürer-Haimendorf.

Christoph von Fürer-Haimendorf lived and worked as an anthropologist throughout the Himalayas from the 1930s through the 1980s. Extraordinary in both its breadth and its depth, the Fürer-Haimendorf collection is one of the finest extant ethnographic film collections that document Himalayan cultures. I admire his work and dedication and we as Nepalese should be proud and stand tall of our ancestors. If you want to know about him then here is the link http://www.digitalhimalaya.com/collections/haimendorf/

Our lives are much easier and better than that but we still do not stop complaining. Have a look at our past then say so.
