In this photo by Ashwini Bhatia, an exile Tibetan holds prayer flags called “lungta,” or wind horse, to be tied on tall posts on the third day of the Tibetan New Year, in Dharmsala, India. Tibetans believe the Buddhist prayers printed on the flags are spread on the wind. The flags’ colors represent the five elements — earth, fire, sky, water and air. The north Indian hill town of Dharmsala became the base of a Tibetan government-in-exile after their spiritual leader the Dalai Lama fled a Chinese military crackdown in Tibet in 1959
