किशोर चौधरी हिंदी किताबें पढ़ने वालों के लिए परिचित नाम है. किशोर रेगिस्तान के वासी हैं और उनकी कहानियों, पुस्तकों और फेसबुक पोस्टों में भी रेगिस्तान की रूमानियत झलकती है. उनसे कई बार मिलना तय हुआ लेकिन हम दोनों एक साथ कभी मिल नहीं सके. पिछले दिनों दिल्ली में मुलाक़ात हुई तो तो उन्होंने वादा[…]

Starry Hills with Fishes in Spring Halls

“Here comes the hippies……”. That was the welcoming comment we received when we entered Frank’s home in Gunehar, a village on the mountains of Himachal Pradesh, somewhere near the Bir-Billing, that is probably the only place in India where you can paraglide.

All houses were down and barely any schools survived the quake. The village was thrown into an obscure darkness of poverty, illiteracy, unemployment and[…]
