16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Anuja and Her Mother
Anuja, a 20-year-old girl from Kathmandu Valley, Nepal, has her mother help her put on a sari, a typical female garment, before attending a wedding ceremony in the city. In Nepal, most marriages are arranged between members of the same caste, but love marriages are becoming more popular every day, especially in urban areas.
