    these kids touch my soul... it's so tough seeing them suffer
    shot these in two diff village schools in the state of Andhra Pradesh on the lse thingy... technically i can show them as they dont show the context in which they were shot...

    oh her eyes! they are so haunting... and the chalk on her face :) she was stopping herself from smiling as the lil boys were teasing her in their language.. but i jus had to smile at her and wait for the reaction

    this one lil girl was so so so cute... heck i could adopt her... felt like giving her a hug and saying that life will get better for her...
    if you guys think this was rough... you really havent seen 99% of what i have in the last few days...
    her school bag was a plastic sheet folded and held together with rope :confused:

    thanks for looking in :)

    I'm so glad you are able to post a few titbits for us from your travels Mansi - the smile on the second little girl's face could teach us all a thing or two.

    You are doing precious, valuable work just now - the things you are seeing may stay with you for ever, but you have a wonderful opportunity which may help these children in the long run. I just hope we'll be able to see more of your work :)

    Awesome shots as ever! Love the expression and the closeness of the first one, makes you feel involved with the picture.
