Sad, touching but ultimately beautiful.

 

My condolences.

And I would not trade those hours for anything under Heaven.

I just spent the past hour reading your posts. I am sad and inspired all at once.

Thank you for sharing of your journey with us. This one post above speaks volumes and says it all!

I just finished reading your post. I truly am touched and almost tearful with your story and experience, and your loss. Beautifully described and the photographs were emotionally stunning. Thank you for sharing it, and my prayers are with you and your family.

I'm grateful for the responses. A few days ago Lucina got in touch to say that Mridula's husband has had a dizzy spell while riding his bike. He crashed, but seems to have escaped with minor injuries. He'd recently been diagnosed with a blood disorder. (My guess would be diabetes.) I'd already been thinking of going back, for many reasons, and this decided me. So I'll be returning at Easter...

Amazing thread. Thank you for sharing and living your life in such an inspiring and creative way.

 

If I may be so bold, I fixed that for you. :)

One of the greatest pleasures on my visits to the village is the children.

She decided she wanted to become a dancer - a Hindi dancer, in a Muslim village.
