Sunderpur

In the midst of a foggy meadows wrapped and island of forest and bamboo, a winding river divides India to Nepal.
And old faded blue building, emerges close to the river, it's a leprosy hospital, surrounded by other poorly constructions. Looks like this small colony has grown away from any border, stigma of leprosy is deeper than the ulcers which causes, this people is invisible as the blindess of the pacients not treated in time.
While leprosy is institutionally erradicated, still alive since Biblical time, as the myths weigh upon the illness, condemned to aseptic lifes of these communities.
Sunderpur is a quiet place, a golden cage suported by NGO, trapping the new generations.
