Jalimunnisha lives in Khotahi village of Kushinagar. When I’d visited her, she had recently lost two of her sons overnight. Encephalitis outbreak in her village had left many families shocked and it was not easy for them to overcome. The silence in village, aggrieved faces and heart rending stories were the reasons, I decided to shoot in black and white. I found no colour in their lives and switched to monochrome mode of my camera. It was after decades, I was making monochrome pictures.
I wish to revisit Khotahi, a day, to meet her.
