Pictures: What The Nepal Earthquake Left Unshaken

I spent almost a week in Barpak village in Gorkha district, which was the epicenter of the earthquake. The villages of Mandre, Barpak, Laprak, Singhla and many others are almost impossible to access and not much help has reached them yet. Several sad stories about these villages have been floating around in the media -- images of people crying and distraught - but what I saw was a sense of resolution rather than dissolution.
