Old lady Johora
This photo was taken on Ashura 2nd day. As I was walking with the ashura group for hours I needed a break. Then i saw an empty space right next where she was sitting. I sat down beside her and asked her name, “Johora” she replied. As we talked, she shared her personal stories with me. She has been begging 4 years. Her husband died because of fever. She has two grown child, a daughter who’s now married and a son, who’s suffering from polio. She sold her land for immediate money. Now she stays in a slum with her sick son. Her daughter has never looked back ever since her marriage.
