patching up the forest...

Last week was my first long term foray into the Shivalik Mountains, walking the lands, looking at forest schools, meeting teachers and community leaders, families and situations. It was eye opening and at times tough in many ways.

Of the many things I began to see and understand, one, is that the Van Gujjar community has very little access to any type of consistent health care. I put down my camera a couple of times to clean a couple of gnarly cuts, that needed some good washing and covering. This boy, Mohammed Sen, feel from a jeep on his way home and back into the forest.

love and health to all...
