Moni baba

High above the Gangotri glacier, lives Moni Baba. He has sustained a vow of silence for over two years. With writing and body language he describes how sacred this area is. Moni baba has chosen this vow of silence as a Hindu gesture to come closer to God. The forestry department are however trying to remove him by stopping food and fuel supplies at their check point further down the valley.
