Photographer's Note

Hi Everybody,

I captured this scene in the busy market place of Old Delhi, just on the day when the Children's day was celebrated all over the country. I found these children doping, pehaps it was smack or marijuana keeping aside a little bit of food they had on the pavement. This capture was altogether a sharp contrast with the spirit of this very special day.

Children's Day is to celebrate "childhood". On Children’s Day tribute is payed to all children in the world. Children are loved by one and all. They win over our hearts with their angelic eyes and innocent smiles. It makes one realise that maybe that’s the way God wanted us to be.

India's first prime minister, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, was born on November 14. After his death in 1963, his birthday has been celebrated as children's Day in India.Children's Day is not just a day to let the future generation have its say. It is a day to remember a leader who, in his quiet but determined way, laid the foundation to convert a nascent nation into a world power.

But why Children's Day? Apart from being known for his skills as a statesman, Nehru was also immensely fond of children.

I hope you will appreciate the work done.

Regards
Tushar
