Zareena Begum has visited the sub-centre in her area for a regular check-up. But, the centre is closed so she requests the locals to let her know once the staff comes. Photograph by Aliya Bashir Kanyari, Bandipora — At a nearby river bank, Zareena Begum, 30, is struggling to fill some clean water in a corrugated aluminum bucket. In her background, two school-going kids are roving a shikara to reach to their school. The boat is the only means of transport to this forgotten piece of land and it carries everything: daily essentials, ill to hospitals and children to school.
