After the Floods : The photos in this gallery illustrate the aftermath of a couple of floods that occurred during the summer of 2000. The Nathpa Jhakri Hydroelectric Project is located on the Satluj (or Sutlej) River (see "F" on the map) in <iframe width="425" height="350" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" src="http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&source=s_d&saddr=delhi,+india&daddr=Chandigarh,+India+to:shimla,+india+to:NH+22+to:NH+22+to:NH+22+to:NH+22+to:NH+22+to:NH+22+to:NH+22+to:31.537579,78.279648&hl=en&geocode=FazwtAEdAFyaBCkttn40W_0MOTHOTSBOSbfCUg%3BFXQF1QEdN6OTBClryW7mC-0POTH-GXNS-Wf_pQ%3BFfKa2gEdam-ZBClnbl3j43gFOTG3VJ__9n9-Hw%3BFYN74QEdUOmkBA%3BFQGk4QEdSzalBA%3BFXma4QEdT-GlBA%3BFW-B4QEdTyamBA%3BFSxV4QEdSV6mBA%3BFeTy4AEd4q2nBA%3BFZr84AEdD2CoBA%3B&mra=dme&mrcr=9&mrsp=10&sz=11&sll=31.622982,78.443756&sspn=0.398758,0.866547&ie=UTF8&t=h&ll=30.178373,78.09082&spn=3.238291,6.932373&output=embed"></iframe><br /><small><a href="http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&source=embed&saddr=delhi,+india&daddr=Chandigarh,+India+to:shimla,+india+to:NH+22+to:NH+22+to:NH+22+to:NH+22+to:NH+22+to:NH+22+to:NH+22+to:31.537579,78.279648&hl=en&geocode=FazwtAEdAFyaBCkttn40W_0MOTHOTSBOSbfCUg%3BFXQF1QEdN6OTBClryW7mC-0POTH-GXNS-Wf_pQ%3BFfKa2gEdam-ZBClnbl3j43gFOTG3VJ__9n9-Hw%3BFYN74QEdUOmkBA%3BFQGk4QEdSzalBA%3BFXma4QEdT-GlBA%3BFW-B4QEdTyamBA%3BFSxV4QEdSV6mBA%3BFeTy4AEd4q2nBA%3BFZr84AEdD2CoBA%3B&mra=dme&mrcr=9&mrsp=10&sz=11&sll=31.622982,78.443756&sspn=0.398758,0.866547&ie=UTF8&t=h&ll=30.178373,78.09082&spn=3.238291,6.932373" style="color:#0000FF;text-align:left">Northern India</a></small>. Started in 1993, it was supposed to be completed in 1998. When I started working on this project in February 1999 for Continental Foundation Joint Venture (CFJV), work was nowhere near complete, and the most recent official projection was 2001 (see the sign in the first photo), but I don't think anyone bought it when I was there. When I left in February 2001, work was still going on, and in the end did not finish until sometime in 2004 when the final turbine units were brought online. Some of the delays were man made, but the most serious were caused by mother nature - rock falls and slides, floods, you name it. When I was on vacation in August 2000, a major flood event destroyed 85% of the construction infrastructure, and seriously damaged significant portions of the permanent works. When I left in 2001 - they were still digging out. The photos in this gallery are a selection of the construction photographs that I took documenting various portions of the progress (or lack thereof). The majority are fairly low quality by today's digital standards - 1 megapixel and 2 megapixel images from an Olympus C2000 digital camera, and scanned negative film images taken on a Minolta 7000 with a cheap wide angle zoom lens. It has been a long time since I worked on this project, and as a result I may have some of the technical details incorrect.

Ladakh Monasteries : "We looked at the monastery..it seemed that it was alive. It was .. as if.. everything that was happening in front of us ..was part of one vast, luminous, transparent living organism... We were looking at a living creature, a creature of light and rock and air..  " Andrew Harvey, A Journey to Ladakh 1983, writing about Thikse monastery.
