Nepal: Flying Over the Mountains

As part of the 100 days in Himalayas project, for Shantanu Moitra and Dhritiman Mukherjee the whole feel of watching the mighty Himalayas from the top was the high-point of the entire expedition. As they explored Nepal from air, Shantanu discovered, at 8000 ft, that his Russian pilot loved the music of the movie ‘Parineeta’  for which Shatanu had composed. An elated fan, the pilot decided to give me a time of his life by spiraling down in an acrobatic landing! Those terrifying 11 seconds had him wishing he had never decided to turn composer, says Shantanu. The Himalayas as you see from Nepal
