This photo was taken during one of the hiking trips. It is very common in village that most of the women have a smoking habit without knowing the consequences. In this picture an old lady is smoking a cigarette while resting after collecting grass for her domestic animals.

  1. Good post. I be taught something tougher on totally different blogs everyday. It’ll at all times be stimulating to learn content material from different writers and observe a little one thing from their store. I’d choose to make use of some with the content on my blog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a hyperlink on your internet blog. Thanks for sharing.

  2. A powerful share, I simply given this onto a colleague who was doing just a little evaluation on this. And he in reality bought me breakfast because I found it for him.. smile. So let me reword that: Thnx for the treat! But yeah Thnkx for spending the time to debate this, I feel strongly about it and love studying extra on this topic. If potential, as you turn into experience, would you mind updating your blog with more particulars? It’s highly helpful for me. Huge thumb up for this weblog put up!

  3. Thank you for your entire work on this website. Gloria takes pleasure in getting into investigation and it is easy to see why. I notice all about the lively tactic you offer simple guidance via the website and in addition cause participation from some other people on this idea and our child is becoming educated a lot.

  4. I am no longer positive the place you are getting your information, but great topic. I needs to spend a while learning much more or understanding more. Thank you for wonderful information I was searching for this info for my mission.

  5. I don’t agree that women in villages have a smoking habit without knowing its consequences. All of us know Smoking is bad, and actual people who know that are the smokers themselves. In the cities also, these days u can see plenty of women with smoking habits despite have a good knowledge and understanding of its effects. And Cancer is such word that has reached each and everyone’s ear, so i can say everyone is aware of it, but…

  6. I can even feel the gentle breeze that’s teasing the smoke of her cigarette. It’s a beautiful picture that portrayed lush green environment of village during monsoon (August 2006) and life of village women. Playful smile on her face add energy to this picture. I would like to know name of this village. Hiking where ??

    Technically this picture is perfect… exposure and depth of field (sharpness). However, I feel that including the other woman at right whose legs can be seen in the picture with a bundle of grass in doko would make this picture even stronger to support its description. Both of them are the main subject. Just moving little to the left could cover both women within the frame and more importantly Milan can capture ‘expression’ on their faces as well.

    Anyway, Good shot! Milan. Keep it up.

  7. Wow !
    nice shot for the nice Life In Nepal index (a palindrome number – 222) 🙂

    Smoke feather is telling us a lot about the mild wind blow… ehe i just felt it.

    Why is she smiling is mysterious but more than that … is that a leech at her feet? 😯
