Nepal 2015: When the devastating 7.8-magnitude earthquake hit Nepal on 25 April, survival was not the only concern for (centre) 17-year-old Rojina Chauhan. She had also gone into labour and would give birth to her son that day. Now nicknamed Bhukampa Bahadur (meaning ‘earthquake brave’), the 3-month-old boy has become a symbol of hope for villagers. “They come here every day just to see him, hoping that he brings good luck to them,” says Rojina.
