Portraiture is a window to the soul !!

At Jai Valley in Bhaderwah, J&K, we met this lady, one fine sunny morning. The eyes told a story. It transpired that just a few weeks ago she had lost her 9 years old daughter to a brief illness. Being a Bakerwal and far removed from medical help, they had tried, unsuccessfully, to treat her by traditional means. That, in part, is the reality of nomadic life.
