Photographer's Note

Just 4 km from Borong is the New Ralong Monastary. Though this monastary is not so well-known or popular as the other famous monastaries of sikkim like Pemiang Tse or Dubdhi, but its nevertheless a high ranked monastary.
We were lucky that the day we visited the monastary (which was totally unplanned) a 2 day lama festival was going on there. This festival held only once a year includes a unique Lama dance. We heard that His Holiness, the present Karmapa was about to reach.
We reached in the middle of the festival. Lamas were seated in the balcony of the Monastary and playing various instruments that gave a very ethical and serious touch to the atmosphere.
There was a lady and a monk who was capturing the entire footage in video (standing at the base of the white pillar).
We were thrilled at our pleasant surprise.
