    Dear Rameshji
    this is really nice snaps cute girl in gurkha traditional dress. but I have a suggestion the green Pota (mala) is not for kanay (virgin) kati its for the married women only so better we should educate them. even elderly people are doing this mistake.I have seen in many areas like darjeeling ASSAM & NE.

    • I agree with you.But one which the little girl is wearing in not green pote(Mala).Actually the one she is wearing is mala made of wool(green wool) and not green pote beads.She liked it very much and insisted on wearing it.
      Anyways Thanks for the comments.
