Title: The Mobile Shopkeeper “I was travelling through the Sherpur District in Bangladesh and was visiting the villages around.

eams Title: Dreams “This old lady caught my attention in Kumortuli, Kolkata, which is a potters’ colony. I was taken aback by her resilience to fight the hardships of life, apparent in her eyes.
