Those are discussing novices of a Lama-school in Ladakh/India.
It was a interesting experience, sitting in between those kids and just watching them how they're used to learn to discuss with their hands (they're doing a special clap with each argument). One ist sitting and normally has to listen to the arguments of the standing one, but can make corrections and tell his opinion (obiously visible in my picture).

that's a long story .. but briefly it was a study trip with my father for studying the relations between the main religions (Hinduism, Islam, Buddhism, Christianity, Sihkism and Parsism) in Inida and their cultural background. we made almost 12000 km from the Himalaya to the very south in three months and it was really worth doing this, I've to say :)

I've heard about this, but never really seen it.

the dedication and devotion of monks always amazes me.

excellent capture of a small piece of their daily lives.

Sounds like a serious change in culture - and a welcomed one at that.
Good shot to get your written words through to the viewer.
