Wrinkles and Dreams by Lavi Dhurve

Wrinkles and Dreams by Lavi Dhurve

We were staying in that village for 6 days for the NSS camp. What are the routines of the people there, and how many people live in the village? How many houses are there? What are the problems of the people? Getting all this information was our first task. During that time I met this uncle. On whose right stood his 5-year-old grandson and granddaughter. The picture that emerged at that time was sitting in front of my eyes, wrinkles of fifty years on one side of it and five years of dreams standing on the other side.

An Old Man with a Turban by Lavi Dhurve

Staying in a village during NSS camp and interacting with the people was a very difficult task. Because there was a lot of caste-based sentiment in people, it was a difficult task to talk to them, they felt that we are people with poverty line survey. Some people used to close the doors of their house just after seeing us. However, there were people who also sensible to share information with an open mind. He is a grandfather among them. Because he was wearing a very colorful turban, in which he looked very good, I took a picture of him.
