Photographer's Note

Life' s hard in India. Life's very hard in India for disabled person. It was very touching to spent some time in Mother Teresa's Home for mentally handicapped people. I've got sister who's retard and she has never been able to speak. I think that helped me to communicate with these persons at Agra, India. Just the eyes and smiles and emotions with no words.

Mother Teresa's guide to us was carved to the stone wall saying: "Make us, Worthy, Lord, to serve our fellow men throughout the World who live and die in poverty and hunger. Give them through our hands, this day their daily bread, and by our understanding love, give peace and joy."

I was able to give her the bread for couple of days, but I just hope that our joyful moments when she saw her face at the screen of camera would last a little longer. To me, these are the moments to live for and never forget. Peace and Joy to Agra, India.
