THE TITLE IS A LITTLE BIT IRREVERENT, BUT THAT'S GOOD SPIRIT. IT'S LIKE SAYING A SWEARWORD ON A HOLY GROUND: REAL LOVE IS DEEPER THAN THE SUPERFICIALITY OF SOME SYLLABLES. YOU FEEL IT. SO... LET'S SEE... AH, YES.
YOU ARE ATTENDING A CHAAM DANCE, PERFORMED ONCE A YEAR ALL ALONG THE HIMALAYAS, HERE IN THAKTOK, LADAKH. WITH EDUCATIONAL TRANCE AND GESTURES OF WATCHMAKER, ON THESE SECONDS GOVERNED BY THE RHYTHM OF DRUMS, THE BUDDHIST MONKS DANCE AND SHOW YOU THE HUMAN CONDITION, CONDITION GOING BACK IN TIME BEYOND RETAINED GENERATIONS UNTIL THE OUTLINES OF HUMANITY FADE AND THERE COME TO LIGHT GODS AND DEMONS. THESE COSTUMES AND MASKS ARE INHERITED FROM MEN TO MEN OVER HUNDREDS OF YEARS. YOU SEE FAITH AT EYE LEVEL AS MUCH AS AT THE LEVEL OF SOULS.
