Saifee expedition, October 1999

Shailendra Singh basks in the sunlight at Bhojbasa

Never before in my life did I realise the importance of sunlight so much as I did when at Bhojbasa. The sky used to be
bright by around 7:00am but it took another hour and a half for the Sun to be at a sufficiently high altitude for us to receive
the sunlight directly. Between 7:00 and 8:30 life was a study in slow motion. There were no smiling faces, no emotions, no
conversations and no sign of life at the campsite till when sunlight descended upon us.
