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.
Girl who makes money by showing her balancing skills on the rope while walking from one end to another in nude feet.This is a risky road show where the rope stays approx 6 ft above from the ground.This photo was taken at Esplande in Kolkata.At this very moment the girl who is well enough skilled in showing balance just lost her balance in staying steady in that little pot of water and showed her annoyed expression on that which in turn seemed to be very sweet indeed.
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).
Busy scene near Howrah Flower Market.Photo was taken at Howrah Mullick Ghat,which is mostly used for washing clothes,taking baths and piling up the wastes of the Flower Market.This little kid with a car in her hand was playing while I was taking her photo,but this man with flower chains suddenly came into this scene and the other two was trying to pretend that they were also being shot.This is one of the busy ghats as it’s the nearest Ghat of the Huge flower market.
An early morning photo taken in the narrow lanes of North Kolkata.Went for a street photo tour and almost at the end of my solo photo walk in the narrow lanes of North Kolkata I found myself so lucky to have such an joyous moment of childhood which we do miss so much now a days in our adulthood.The innocence of that little boy was eye catching and the birds flew as a symobol of freedom which we live to the fullest in our childhood.
