Little Tibet is a name given to Ladakh, a beautiful region in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir bordering Tibet to the east and bearing its influence. In the shadow of Great Himalaya, Indus Valley is inhabited by people of Tibetan descent. The book is telling us their stories – narrating about the history of Ladakh, about present-day people, and, finally expressing wishes and visions for the future. So, here you will find fairy-tales and folk tales as well as Buddhist stories – along with the stories of people the authors met and who had stories to tell. For them, the past, the presence and the future merge into one entity. Finally, a reader will also find completely new stories that arose from the creative work of children in the Spring Dales Public School.Life is changing rapidly. Where yesterday there was not even a dirt track, dozens of cars flow along a new road today. Next to the houses made of clay new concrete buildings are growing up.All together the Stories of Little Tibet form a kind of collage, which in a new context could reveal the actual life of people in Ladakh and the tradition from which it stems.
