The Kingdom of Bhutan, nestled high in the Himalayas, is one of the least populated countries in the world, one of the most inaccessible and least visited, one of the poorest, and yet also one of the ‘happiest’. By contrast the Republic of India - the world’s most populous democracy - is visited by millions, supports an emerging middle class, yet harbors vestiges of a colonial and caste-driven past and uncounted millions of impoverished beggars. Both countries are colorful, dynamic, exciting, and yet completely different - though they share a common border and an intertwined history.
Join us as we visit Bhutan and India as seen through the eyes, photographs and videos of Daniel Spitzer. This presentation, part of an ongoing travel series, will take place at the Piermont Public Library on Sunday October 15 at 2 PM. Suitable for age ~12 and older.
