Arranging something in Ladahk...
Maybe you remember that Myra and I had spoken early in June with Palmo on the participation of LNA nuns in the training in Auroville for maintenance of the 'Solar System ' .
We also mentioned that it was important that Chamba could participate. Mainly because she has a good technical mind and also we wanted to give her a chance to get away from all the usual tasks in Nyerma . This got us to the question of what to do with the care of the oldest nun Dolma Janskit ? She has dementia and has become more child like and was looked after by Chamba.
