Travel anecdote: We were at Tangtse, on the way to Pangong Lake, in Ladakh. After we finished our ‘thali’ lunch and about to step into the car, I noticed a bunch of papers in a transparent folder, neatly kept on the car windshield from outside. On checking it, I found out, they were copies of our entry permits! When they had fallen out of my bag and out of the car on the road, I failed to fathom. The fact, that some guy, picked it up from road and kept it safely for us to continue with our journey without any hassle. We would have had to abort our further journey without those papers, as they are to be given at least at three check posts en route Pang . I had no words to thank the unknown person. Such is the integrity of the simple, pious, honest people of Ladakh.
