Took these sometime back when I visited Tibetan Refugees Self Help Center here in Darjeeling. At the time of my visit, weaving of Tibetan carpets were at a halt, but I got to see the residents playing a game of dice which is common known in Darjeeling as “Parashyo“. This is widely known as the Tibetan game of dice – “SHO”. It comprises of two dice, throwing cup, pad on which the dice is placed, some coins and shells. The unique thing about this is that all things are handmade by the folks interested in the game. I posted some of the photos on Thunderbolt Tea’s Facebook page, but not these ones (I guess). Enjoy the photos!
