Namgay with his holy texts in the prayer room of his rammed earth house, Shingkhey Village, Bhutan. Namgay, who has a hunched back and a clubfoot, grinds grain for neighbors with a small mill his family purchased from the government.  Namgay is also a reader of sacred texts and conducts house cleansing and healing ceremonies for their 14-house village. From Peter Menzel's Material World Project.
