(Chhang is a wonderful beverage made of fermented barley or rice and generally had in lieu of water.

Tenzing's is a half and half story, with a sequel:

Who's this Tenzing Momo?

Tenzing was born and brought up in Mussoorie. He was born to a Rajput father and Tibetan mother. His mother is from Kham which is known for its hot blood, and swordsmanship (remember Chengiz Khan?). His father is from Mewar another place well known for war cries and proud moustaches.

Woodstock International Christian School is where Tenzing discovered America. The backpack, the baseball cap, and the Navajo.

Worked as Public Relations officer for Woodstock School for two years coordinating diverse activities for the school and the local community, also old students returning from various parts of the world. And thereby learnt all about the magic word management. Ten years experience in running his mother's Tibetan art-craft store on Janpath also helped (Doma, No 12, Janpath). Incidentally, Doma (Momo's mother) has starred in Bertolucci's magnum opus Little Budha.
