Photographer's Note

Hi Friends,

In my recent visit to Cooch Behar in West Bengal I found this lady sitting beside the gate of Baneshwar Temple. This Temple is very old and has got significant history with it. I will share the Temple's pictures in my later posts.

After having a few words with the lady I found that she is not a beggar. She is from a nearby village and being here in the temple is her livelihood, at least provides a single or double meal a day. She shares the same story as my previous posts of "Matter Of Time". A million widows have the same story of getting Abandoned from the family at old age if they don't have some assets in form of land and bank balance left by their husbands.

Well its much of the story and reportage. I just wanted to share a portrait with you. She is not sticking the tongue out at me or my lens.LOL. She was just thirst in a humid and hot day.

I hope you will enjoy one of my efforts again.

Thanks for Visiting
