The woman pierced her left nostril

Shot in the city of Murshidabad, India.

I met an elderly woman who had her nose pierced when I strolled along the streets. It was common for women to have nose pierced here. And all women did on the left nostril. I wondered why they did so at first.

Apparently, they believed it had an effect of diseases peculiar to women. To have nose pierced was not just a fashion here. The woman standing just in front of me looked straight at me and had creases at the corners of her eyes.
