Especially fond of the children, Uncle Kinley Dorji (seated at right) has given up marriage to help with childcare in his sister Nalim's house. A typical task: feeding a weekend breakfast of sweet, thick rice soup to Tandin Geltshin, one of the two-year-olds. His namesake and nephew, Kinley (standing at left) observes the jumble of children from the lofty distance of his 17 years. A student at a boarding school an hour's walk away, he is home only for weekends. Namgay and Nalim's family lives in Shingkhey Village, Bhutan.
