Palo Khoya with abortionist

It may be hard for a Westerner to understand why she was willing to be photographed at such intimate moments, in a country where people say nasty things about women who have abortions.

Her doctor, Simi Mahesh, explains that there is a bond between doctor and patient: “They do trust me, and that could be a reason.” That trust would extend to the photographer who is working with the doctor.

Also, Palo Khoya spends her life in a remote village, coping with day-to-day challenges.

The Internet is just not relevant.
