Chitkul Village, Kinnaur

Chitkul Village, Kinnaur, Himachal Pradesh

A shaft of sunlight catches a mother and son getting ready for their daily chores. It’s an endearing vision. But in the deep shadows around them nestles the grind of the day waiting at the doorstep… soon the mother and son will go their own ways - the son to the nursery under the sky and mother to the forest for firewood. The father?

In the village square playing cards and drinking the local brew.
