Photographer's Note

There is no love, like a mother's love,
no stronger bond on earth...
like the precious bond that comes from God,
to a mother, when she gives birth.

A mother's love is forever strong,
never changing for all time...
and when her children need her most,
a mother's love will shine.

God bless these special mothers,
God bless them every one...
for all the tears and heartache,
and for the special work they've done.

I have been away from Trekearth the last few weeks, mostly due to my work commitments. But I found time in between to squeeze in a small vacation to some tiny Himalayan hamlets. This picture is from Bindu, a small picturesque village on the Indo-Bhutan border. Situated at an altitude of around 2000 feet, it rests on the lower foothills of the Himalayas and more importantly away from the mobile networks:) I was coming down a hill towards the village and could see women folks busy chatting away on a rainy afternoon. As I trained my camera on them from a distance, the young and proud mother having spotted the attention I was getting, held up her son for my benefit. The thickly forested hill behind them descended sharply into the river valley.
