Thursday Doors

Sorry about missing last week’s challenge – I was away from my base in Delhi, visiting an MSF Medecins Sans Frontieres/Doctors Without Borders project in Manipur. So I will offer to show you some doors from the far North-East of India.

These pictures are from a prayer mountain in the village of Gelmuol, above the town of Churachandpur (CCpur for short). You check into these tiny chalets to pray and meditate, not to enjoy the view over the surrounding countryside. Some chapel/chalets have been dedicated to the deceased. “Whenever you wake up, before you put on your makeup, say a little prayer for me.”

This is the door/gateway to another prayer mountain, on the opposite side of the town.

Dogs guarding the doors in CCpur. With the occasional cow and rusting engines and machinery, for good measure.

You could check into the Calbo Hotel, for some “fooding and lodging”. Arrow-topped doors.

Or if the fooding results in adverse gastrointestinal consequences, you could visit the doctor. Not the one pictured in the lower left hand corner of the window…

  1. Looks like any entry into those doors may result in a hard time (?) Thanks for sharing, unless you are in situ you really would have no idea how lives are lived…
