In pictures: The remarkable tale of Aamir Hussain Lone, the armless Indian cricketer

A photograph of Aamir Hussain Lone broke the internet. In it, the young cricketer from Kashmir plays a defensive shot, batting down a delivery on a dusty pitch. Not particularly remarkable, except that Aamir is holding the bat between his chin and his chest. And he has no arms.
One cloudy afternoon of March 2016, after meandering over the 10 kilometre stretch from the Sangam area of Anantnag district in southern Kashmir, driving the bike over the slopes and curves and past the saffron fields, blossoming almond and walnut trees, through the orchards we reach Waghama – a beautiful village of traditional ethos some 48 kilometres away from the summer capital Srinagar.
