and at a tribal school... they have no connection to roads and no vehicles go to here no phones no connection to the outside world as such... spirits were high and the kids were great! we had to take a govt jeep and permission to go here... waving a bye and i shot this from the back of the jeep

These are very photo journalistic and each one stands on it's own :D The appearance of the photos is perfectly suited for the type of shots. Great job on everyone of the school series shots you have posted :thumbsup:

I agree with Woody the whole series has been just wonderful and these are no exception. The first shot in this group is my favorite. Excellent work as always!

Great series Mansi. It's so interesting for people like me, who have never been to that part of the world, to see what daily life is like there. Every detail is of interest: what's the classroom made of, how is it set up, what goes on the walls. I just pore over your images. Keep diggin' and posting please!

These are just sooo dam good Mansi, fantastic !!! I really love the last photo, you really captured an excellent moment of happiness from them as they waved their hands to the pretty photographer whom spent the day with them. You really know how to fill the frame girl.

Your awesome Mansi !!! 8 )

mansi mansi gotta agree with jake here....purty got nuthin to do with it. yer totally out there documenting the day in the life of rural students and you can't expect every shot to be nat geo cover material (tho i must say you got your fair share of those ;) ).
I think you've done a fantastic job capturing these kids in their enviornment and i think that is basically what you were asked to do. For one of your first assignments you deserve to pat yourself on the back. :D well done and thanks so much for sharing them :thumbup:

Amazing as always Mansi. To see the other side of the world and culture, through your eyes is a really special gift you have. I can look at your pics for a long time. I found myself looking around the room that the kids are in, and to see the difference in the school is unreal. There are no ipods, or cell phones, or knapsacs filled with food. Just sooo different, but unique too.
Thanks for sharing. Excellent series.
