About the Programme/Event

In this talk, SHIVAJI DAS will share some highlights from his recent book, The ‘Other’ Shangri-La: Journeys through the Sino-Tibetan frontier of Sichuan. He will discuss his experiences of staying with the nomads in a high altitude; visiting Litang—the world’s highest town that is also the birthplace of important Lamas; Larung—the world’s largest monastery and highest slum; Kangding—a small town that gave birth to China’s favourite love song, and his gate-crashing into a beauty contest in China’s lost Queendom.

The talk will also explore how the recent socio-economic and political trends have affected the lives and cultures of the people inhabiting these remote lands, many parts of which have since barred access to foreigners.
