This little girl was waiting for her mom inside the ENT clinic. Hectic day with hundreds of patients serviced. For more info, check out http://www.bidada.org


My Best Photo

This is probably one of the best photos I took during the entire trip. Almost all the women in Kutch wore this kind of garb…Amazing really.


Hanging Out…

Everywhere we went, there were tons of people hanging out, waiting in lines, or waiting for loved ones. This cutie was among the crowd.


Tympanoplasty

This isn’t my best picture from the OR, so I’ll have to repost it but our first day of volunteering during the ENT camp. All I can say is that I’ve never seen so many perforated tympanic membranes.


Bidada Village

Bansari and I took an excursion into the town of Bidada. After walking aimlessly for 20 minutes, we met some village women that took us back to their houses. Hello neighborhood kids.


Lines and More Lines
