Monastic scholars at #Rumtek #Monastery unwinding with a game of Carrom. Carrom, or Karrom, is the shuffleboard equivalent of pool: the aim of the game is to pocket all your flat 'men' and the 'Queen' into the corner pockets of the board, using a 'striker'. It's sort of the equivalent of pocketing all your solids or stripes before pocketing the eight-ball using a cue ball (in pool).
I post this, not because I have nothing else to post (read: I don’t– I’m hard at work as far as university and work goes), but to remind myself (and hopefully you, too), that happiness comes in all shapes and sizes.
