Jesse Samuel Geffen, Feburary 4, 2009

I had to erase dust off a photo of negatives that probably had their own dust to be erased. How meta is that?? This is in the Park photo lab; Jesse had just dried his film, and is now sliding them into their storage sheets. They will be scanned into the computer later on. I love the process.

For some extra-sensory info, both of our hands probably smelled like photo chemicals at the time this photo was taken. For the best viewing experience, dip a day-old turkey and rusted metal sandwich into a bottle of bleach, then hold it up to your nose. That’s the smell of photography!

68 year old Lakshmi makes incense sticks at a older people’s village run by HelpAge India.

“Before I came to the older people’s village, TEV, set up by HelpAge India, my husband was not doing well. First he was hospitalised and then he passed away. I was in a bad condition after that and had suffered with my husband. An older woman from the my local Elders Self Help Group told me to inform the group about my condition during a group meeting. When I told the group about my situation they recommended me for admission to the TEV (an older people’s village supported by HelpAge India).

Incense stick making at TEV
I am now a member of the self help group here at TEV. As a member of the self help group, I am on the food committee and do work in the kitchen. I help the older people who are dependant on care. Also, I help in making these ‘computer sambrianis’."

Sambriani is an incense stick and in the local market everything that is man made gets the prefix ‘computer’.

"I learnt how to make these sticks here at the TEV. First we take the sambriani powder then purchase the plant that is used to make these sticks. We grind it to make it a paste and then add saw dust and water. Then we force the paste through the mould to make these stcks.

It is good work and helps me pass time. About 7 of us make some 100 boxes a month. From this we make a profit of Rs 150 each. One box has 24 incense sticks and sells for Rs 20 each.”

Gem is Valuable.. So You are :)

Gem is Valuable.. So You are :)

People sometimes feel they are on the wrong place,

or going through awful situations..

Maybe we spend time on Mud 🙁 alot but that doesn’t

mean that we aren’t valuable..

The most important thing is that Allah is

Satisfied and to him we are Valuable.. 🙂

And Sure one day Gem will go to the right place,
and same for Dust.
