Generations by Suppi-lu-liuma Generations by Suppi-lu-liuma
Dhulikhel in Nepal is located near the Himalayas at 1,550m above sea level and is situated 30 km southeast of Kathmandu. The people in the village are Newars, Bhramin, Chhettri, Tamang and Dalit.

Dhulikhel has for many centuries been an important trading centre on the ancient commercial route linking Nepal to Tibet. Nepalese traveled to Tibet to bring home salt and gold. Likewise, the Tibetans every year with their flocks of sheep entered into Nepal during Dashain, the greatest Hindu festival. They purchased chilies and other daily necessities in Nepal and returned to their homeland.

In those days, a whole day walk from Kathmandu to Dhulikhel was a comfortable choice for Tibet trippers for an overnight stay on the way back to Tibet. Even now, a bird's eye view from the resorts at Dhulikhel to the landscapes; the highway to Tibet and horizons far to the Tibetan borders, clearly exhibits Dhulikhel as the gateway of Tibet.

After adjoining with Tibet by motorable road in 1965, Dhulikhel got a face lift and developed as a tourist destination both for Tibet trippers and tourists.

I met those ladies while making a tour in the narrow streets of Dhulikhel's old town. We met four generations having fun together. Those ladies seem to be the first two and were kind enough to pose for me.

This is such a beautiful photo. It seems very much like a painting done by one of my favorite artists, R.C. Gorman, who created Native American artworks frequently in bright saturated colors. If you're interested, here's a link to the First People gallery that contains some of his works: [link] . Since the Navajo people originated from the area of Northwestern Canada and Alaska, perhaps there's a long-ago relationship between these ladies and the earliest people who settled in what we now call the United States.

Thank you very much Dear Marilyn. I'll definitely look at the link you suggested.

It is highly probably that people exchanges happened from the Bering Straits thousands years ago.

I missed your lovely and rich comments. :-)

9 moths old already! So she can probably sit.
I do like baby's of this age, you can have great contact with them.
To bad to hear that she has fever. Hope she will get well soon!!!
Of course I remember! You're on my top list of photographers and
than it's not hard to remember.

Thank you very much. You're so kind. :-)

She looked like a little monkey when she was born (people around me was very mad at me when I said that, but that was true). Now that she smiles, her facial traits are much more pleasant.

She giggles a lot. We get sad when she is so calm and she shows signs of pain. But that's the nature of the game, I guess, babies don't grow up without catching viruses. :-)

That makes them stronger!

Not many people admit that their baby's are not beautiful.
The first weeks they have a lot of crinkles, but when they grow
older they disappear.

That's why I love the age of 9 months, so much interaction and
real contact with the baby. They are cute when they are younger,
but they sleep a lot.

That's so much true. They sleep often, but that's always a pleasure to watch them in their sleep.

In Turkey, blue eyes are not common, that's why people are crazy about having blue eyed babies. The funny thing is that, blue eye doesn't necessarily mean they will grow more beautiful. I just looked around the other day, and realised that I hadn't even noticed adults with light-colored eyes. :-)

We have wished from the beginning that she would be a kind, happy, smart individual. That's still all we hope for. :-)
