End of a day, at the year's close. A widow in rural Bengal trudges home with two goats--her two reasons to wake up next morning. Then the next year.

This is one of the most sensitive images I have ever come across, with or without the note. The technical qualities of the photograph is too obvious to mention.
I really think you should have an exhibition - if you already haven't.

I like this scene. Its compo is nice with the three protagonists along the perspective lines.
Concerning your note, I have to think about "As far as I am concerned, what are my goats ?" !
Have a nice week

Difficult life, i think she's happy that the day has ended. I think it's a beautiful tribute to all the hardworking women in the rural places.

Animesh: still enjoying your uncompromising, deviating BW style. Perhaps some of the last BW film being uploaded here on TE. best, c

Seems very familiar - but for the figure it might the English Lincolnshire...

Oh this again, Animesh, tremendous work again from India. I agree with Salil, its sensitivity is deep and much in evidence. The moment, the feeling all in this deceptively simple composition are touching right the depth of the heart.
Into my favs again...

B/W suits better for this frame. And, it's the beginning....of a new day for the woman...Your way of telling the story is great.
