Bimala Devi

At 81 years old, Shanti's oldest resident (I think). Bimala Devi is a jewel. When I visit her she grabs my hand, hangs on tight, and says my name so sweetly... since I don't speak Nepali, she then teases me so that everyone else in the room can laugh at me.
She moved to Shanti 2 years ago after losing her eyesight.
