Martyrs wife in grief


Interacting with Madheshi martyr Birbal Mukhiya’s wife in Pokhariya. She was sharing her struggle after her husband’s death. Her only son doesn’t earns much for the family and she also had to sale a major part of her land to pay the debts her husband had taken.

We met her at Pokhariya Municipality’s deputy mayor Salma Khatoon’s office where she had come seeking some aid for her son’s treatment. She says, she hasn’t received much help from political leaders and authorities and many have conned her lying to get her son a good job.

Thanks to Deputy Mayor of Pokhariya Municipality Salma Khatoon for this wonderful picture.
