Johora Begum

“This is Johora Begum, 92 years old, no children, saving the days in a private asylum for the elderly, somewhere in Dhaka. Dhaka, Bangladesh. I sat next to her and she said to me: Brother, where have you been so long? And I said to her: I was was waiting for you. And than she was sitting next to me, very close and very happy, totally at rest.” – Martijn Crowe
