Tashi's Bar is an apt entry point to this collection's twenty stories. Anecdotal, frequently fact based, the author uses straight forward narrative to weave his tales. Who is Tashi? It's a question Tashi himself is fond of asking? Is he the almost mythical hero of Everest, Monk, Tantric, Fire starter, Film star et al, or just the plain if affable trekking guide with the trademark Manchu hair cut who frequents Leh's Namra bar on most evenings? As Tashi's audacious bar venture demonstrates, he like most of us is some combination of both. The fantastic and the mundane.
