Lemon Rice/ Chitranna


Lemon Rice/ Chitranna for Yellow for Bri

A mastectomy, chemotherapy and two years of relatively good health later, the cancer is back. It has metastasized to other parts of her body. At the age of 15, Bri lost her 41-year old mother to the disease. Now, she’s waging her own war against breast cancer. Read more...


CLICK is a monthly theme-based photography contest hosted by Jugalbandi. This month’s theme is: YELLOW for Bri. Yellow is the colour of hope. Through the work of the LiveStrong Foundation,, it has also come to signify the fight against cancer. This month’s photo contest also has some prizes.
