. “We have a small house, two rooms, its not enough for everyone in my family. The land is not fertile, we don’t have enough to eat. There is even no way to earn more money, so my husband keeps having to go to india.”
"so how do you make ends meet?"
"I doubt I’ve seen ends meet, maybe when I meet my end, that is when that will happen" .

. Bir Bahadur Bhattarai | On the road to Dadeldhura, 2014 .
"I started working as a ‘dhami’ (spirit healer) since I was 20-21. I invoke ‘Mahadev’ when I go into a trance."
We met him when the road was closed off for construction. In addition to being a Dhami, he is also a retired police officer and now a part-time highway construction worker.
At 56, he has probably seen the widest career changes.
