Retired postman Faizul Hassan Qadri, 79, walks out of the monument he is building for his late wife Tajammuli in the town of Kaser Kalan, in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. After she died, he sold her small pieces of jewelry and some family farmland, added everything he'd saved over the years and started building the memorial. Tajammuli lies inside the main building in a small tomb, but almost three years later the project remains unfinished. He doesn't have much money, and only hires workers when he can.
