Finding salvation within the stories of Nepal survivors

He tried to stop his boozing but had relapsed, sneaking "10 rupee hooch."

One evening within the Dhading area northwest of Katmandu, he stopped his motorcycle at the roadside cliff. Perhaps, he thought, arrived to end everything.

He entered rehab instead. 6 months later, in October 2013, Jay Poudyal began photographing and interviewing his countrymen and posting their stories online, finding meaning in connecting with fellow Nepalese, sharing their joys, their quirks, their sorrows.

"It really began as my very own journey to be aware of the years that we lost to alcohol," Poudyal said.

Anf the husband took his camera. Poudyal had hired a truck and driver so he could deliver relief supplies he previously helped gather.

The pickup rounded a bend and approached a village where he'd collected stories.

"Oh my God," Poudyal gasped.

The guesthouse where he had stayed and talked to the owner would have been a heap of rubble. The snack shop where he'd interviewed villagers had imploded.

I remember when i met a vintage lady in the far west who said everything you can do is laugh for your own misery . Jay Poudyal

Later, with a village called Ratemate, or red dirt, he saw youths sifting through red mud bricks and piling them up. The temple roof lay atop a heap of debris. His truck turned off the main road and headed up a steep, rocky path, the relief effort fading inside the distance.

"Every time <a href=http://www.discountrbsale.top>ray ban sale 80% off</a> I see a road such as this, I just go," Poudyal said. "People can't locate places like this. That's why I really do Stories of Nepal."When he launched his website Stories of Nepal, the 35 years old Poudyal, who has a neat beard and favors shorts, Tshirts and Ray ban sunglasses Wayfarer sunglasses, had about 100 likes. Now, since the earthquake, it has more than 110,000.

Poudyal pairs photographs with haiku like captions, sometimes commenting on the he sees, sometimes quoting anybody pictured. The captions are haunting in their brevity.

With a photo of Mina Tamang, a lady in a red sari sitting next to a basket of tomatoes: "After some time the tears also run dry. I was thinking it's no use anymore to just sit and cry using the children. I acquired these tomatoes in the garden to offer at the highway. Maybe I'm able to earn some cash and buy spices and rice. Now the children cry in fear but eventually they're going to start crying for food."

Poudyal initially posted names, but he's become so busy considering that the earthquake he usually just lists the locations on the website, which he uses to improve donations for that remote villages.

Having a photo of the grim man inside a dirty T-shirt and cap in Sanistaar: "Too tired digging. Father continues telling me to dig in the rubble. I do not think he even knows that which you are looking for. There's nothing of value. Too tired."

Having a photo of an young woman, dressed in a plaid peasant blouse and red wedding beads, waiting her ruined home in Jyamdi: "I feel great relief to spill out my despair. Not many are asking for money. Few are asking for houses being rebuilt. Sometimes, all you need is contact with others and to hear that you have people out there who are doing what they can to help."

Unlike many photos from Nepal currently, Poudyal's images don't concentrate on rubble or emergency crews. Faces fill the frame, some smiling.

In the photo from Tinpiple, a mid-life mother within a red and green embroidered salwar kurta, or pantsuit, grins on her porch stacked with hay.

"There is no other choice rather than to endure," she says. "No other option than to somehow survive and no other choice instead of be on the table. There is <a href=http://www.raybanoutlet-online.top>ray ban outlet online</a> no other option than to hope. Not one other choice rather than to cry and regret no other choice rather than to sit and laugh."

Stories of Nepal has followers in Asia, Europe and the United <a href=http://www.cheapoaksunglasseswholesale.top>oakley sunglasses cheap</a> States, but especially within Nepal. They leave comments on the spot and Facebook page.

"We have seen enough heartbreaking pictures. it's posts such as these that warm the center when all we view is ache everywhere," <a href=http://www.cheapoaksunglasseswholesale.top>oakley sunglasses cheap</a> wrote Sujan Dhital, a medical student in Katmandu.

"It's you who make our nation proud. You are unable to stop," wrote Rajashwi Sen. "You have to keep going. You're the future of our new Nepal.".
