Description

The Himalayan region of Ladakh in northern India is presented as culture that has adapted well to the region by placing emphasis on the preservation of the environment, sustainable agriculture, and cooperation in community projects. However, the growing pressures of "western-style" modernization and development is placing heavy social and environmental pressures on this society. The values of western development are criticized harshly.
