These pictures were taken during that trip, from a camera she had gifted me. Partly because photography seemed to take my mind away from the impending doom and partly because a part of me was still hopeful she'd live and we'd look back to these pictures and smile together. Soon after, she passed away (24th August, 2010) and I stopped taking pictures since my life had reduced to surviving every single breath. I had kept them in wraps since. Never showed them to anyone.
The following pictures were either captured in my village, the town near it or through our six and a half hour journey to reach it. DISCLAIMER: I, by no means claim to be a 'photographer'! I just have an eye for nature, a cell phone with a camera and a personal blog. Ciao!
