Grandmother

My grandmother Saleha Begum aged around 80 years. She has been living with his 4 sons since my grandfather died more than 25 years ago. Now her health condition is not so good. She has been suffering from diabetics and other health problem from a long time. In my childhood she was my closest of friends. I used to take food by her hand, sleep with her and play with her. I can still remember myself crying and  smelling her saree when she used to go away from our house to another uncle’s house. Now being grown up also it makes me feel empty on the thought that she had to leave us someday or we all have to leave each other.Feeling sad for her. Please pray for her good health and a long life.

This 40,000 MT , 183m long bulker was my home, my house, my protector in the wild sea and my playground. I had some profound memories in it and some really disgusting ones too. Living with 20 men for such a period of time under single roof does create an emotional  bonding  an intimate situation not only with the people but also with the superstructure itself.  This is a very personal and emotional  sets of pictures for me. It is a testament of my psychological condition at that time and the emotional attachment with these people. This project is a continuous one and I have the intention to carry this out through the my entire sea life.
