Every mask has its own story
These are total 12 lucky boys got the chance this year to make these beautiful dresses and to be the man who will be a part of this great act of their deity, 6 from one panchayat and 6 from another , and all the three days of festival they walk around in near by villages with their local deity . And on the final day of festival , they all sing and dance together performing several acts together .
As most of the people says ” Wherever you go , whatever you do You don’t have to forget your roots ” But only very few of us really think about it . This is what I have learn from these loving people living somewhere deep inside mountain’s holding the hand of their local culture , deity and their ancestral rituals . Don’t matter how busy they are in their lives , they always have time for the things that relates to their culture ..

Saket Sankhyan is one of the best photographers of Himachal Pradesh emphasizing on clean and green tourism. Saket himself owns one of the most beautiful and prestigious property in Jibhi by the name I feel Himalayas. Jibhi is one of those places in Himachal Pradesh which are very less explored as compared to the villages like Tosh, Kasol, Malana.
So if you are planning a trip a Jibhi then make sure that you stay in IfeelHimalyas cottages and cafe and give Saket Sankhyan a chance of hosting.
