Hindu Untouchable ~ Woman of Grace
Category: Travel Portraits
Photo and caption by Diane Cashin
A family of Hindu Untouchables, living in the forest, were provided several acres of land & a small home in the mountains of Manku, Nepal by the MountainFund.org. While I could not speak Nepalese, she was a gracious and loving host. This photograph was taken after she had prepared dinner and took a few moments to sit quietly & meditate. Shortly after this photo was taken, the room was transformed from the kitchen/dining area to sleep a family of four on mats made by hand. I was blessed to have them touch my life & I wanted to share her with the world to thank her for her hospitality & grace.
