  1. Every bit of time and life that she has seen is etched on her face, but it is also evident that a good number of those times brought smiles and laughter which are also recorded. Masterful and tender work. Joshi.

  2. So many wrinkles..wondering what she has seen, what she is thinking..
    People have tendency to look or smile at the camera..she is not doing either..how did you manage it?
