This sweet girl named Zohab I met near Pretoria Street,Kolkata,was dancing in her mood in an alley of North Kolkata . The time she found me coming with a camera she ran into her house and after so many request she agreed to let me take her picture,but the sad part is after a small conversation with her,her uncle/father (I don’t know) came out and protested as usually the people from this religion do specially in Kolkata. He said to leave that place immediately and even threatened to beat. Feel so silly how they are trying to spread the secularism while being a part of a country like India. Incredible India.
They call it religious,wearing hizab or the cap always,but the religion must be named after humanity , wearing hizab or cap and then taking up the guns or bomb shells doesn’t make them religious,if u living in India then try to respect the country at least where u r born n brought up,don’t ask it to be part of Pakistan,if you wanna join do join without any doubt but don’t dream about parting the Kashmir.It’s a warning from the Indians,don’t ever dream about it.
He was busy in catching fish while I was busy in catching this moment at Ahiritola Ghat.This was already been a beautiful day gifted by the highly saturated blue sky in Kolkata and this special moment made this more special as this you rarely find in the ghats of Kolkata just because of lack of depth of our Holy River ganges.
School-where we do feel like a jail in our early childhood and when it’s in the early morning it feels like some one woke you up with a heart broken dream left to be completed.This is why almost every time you find them to go to the school holding tightly the hands of their parents,as the try hard to manage them and to make them understand that they don’t want to go,they just want to stay close to them.This early childhood,every little boy and girl loves to play all the day if they have got enough energy to serve this purpose,and when the time to go to school comes they do feel so heart broken that this is the time when they are not gonna play and they have to stay away from their parents.That’s why they hold their hands so tightly.This is a very common picture for all the morning schools meant for the little children.This photo was taken near Bagbazar(Kolkata,India) and this little girl was a student of “Bagbazar Multipurpose School”(For girls).
“TAXI…..” the common prolonged call you can hear in every corner of this city,if you go to the top of any sky high building in Kolkata you can see almost this scenario,every five to ten minutes you are gonna find at least one yellow taxi rushing towards the destination of the passenger in it or else a passenger is closing the deal to make the taxi driver convinced to go for the place he/she wants.This is one of the common and useful transport of this beautiful city of joy.But now a days they are commonly known as “No Refusal Taxi”,though they are not like that.There is 70% chance you get rejected by the driver to go for your place if you are not agreed to give him the fair he claims,specially in the office hours.Still we love to have a glimpse of TAXI when we are almost exhausted and want to go home as quick as possible with a backrest. 🙂
Festival of color: Commonly known as Holi in India.People from all round the corner of this World come here to engage themselves in this beautiful festival and to have a taste of this different kind of culture.Truely India is the incerdible mixture of culture and this festival truely depicts that scenario. Foreigners from different country feel free to get colored and they do enjoy this festival from their heart. Different kinds of color are being used,some is liquid,some is powder and some are blown towards other using baloons.But all together it’s a festival of coloring the people around us and thus spreading the message of happiness and love.These are the happy faces captured through my lens during the Holi festival of 2014 in Kolkata.
