Barpak VDC after the 2015 earthquake

In Feburary, 2016, I, Lulu, conducted fieldwork in Grokha District, Nepal. The whole field investigations were finished in the epicentre of the April 25 Gorkha earthquake --- Barpak VDC. Barpak, accommodating 1447 households with 7732 people, is isolated from cities in Nepal. It is a very different settlement. People there speak local dialect. All houses collapsed in the earthquake. Now villagers live in temporary shelters built from corrugated iron shed, plastic tents, and they are on their way to recovery.
