A young Tharu man: an “outsider”

Collection: Nepal Picture Library
Original Medium & Size: Glass Plate 6.5X4.7 in (16.5 x 12 cm)
Contributor: Ravi Mohan Shrestha
Place: Tanse, Palpa

Shyam Mohan Shrestha remembers a lot of “outsiders” such as this Chaudhary man coming to his father to be photographed. The landowners of Tansen would call the Tharus up from the plains of Bhairahawa and Dang for Dasain and Tihar. The Tharus journeyed on foot, bringing ducks, chicken and grain for the festivities.

Here, this young Tharu man is clearly dressed to impress with a blazer over his linens and his hair combed to the side. His stance in this portrait evokes careful power.
