These photos were taken from a visit that I took to the Bylakuppe refugee camp in Southern India as a part of my Friends World Program, Long Island University studies . They show monks carrying out a very agressive, loud, though playful, debate session, school children from the refugee school, a monastery, and village children who really took a liking to my facial hair. I taught them the words for beard and mustache and they yelled them at me laughing for the entire duration of my visit. A nice time.

    These debate sessions might sound aggressive, but actually they are quite friendly. The ;loud clapping is just a gesture of making a point, asking a question
