A few of the people I met during my journeys throughout India
Baidehi. Varanasi. Uttar Pradesh
I know it's a simple portrait, not a very good image. But it has a story. Baidehi is a old woman, people told me, 100 years old. She is a destitute woman from the state of Bihar. She came to Varanasi to die. She is living with other older women inside a house next to the cremation ghats. A very nice woman, I forgot her name, has set up this place for those women to die peacefully. she was adorable.
