Photographer's Note

Hi Friends,

Chuski is the ice cola in Hindi Language.

I got this image in a market place in Delhi. I saw this kid begging for the cola. When he was enjoying I clicked and shared a few minutes talking to him. I won't conclude anything out of it. Its a bit long and if your patience allows please read it.

.........................................

Mehmood: What will you do with my picture ?
Me: Nothing, I will keep it with me.

Me: Where do you live?
Mehmood: Anywhere where I get place to sleep on the pavements and on the Veranda of shops.

Me: What your parents do?
Mehmood: My mother died of Tancer(Meant Cancer) and my father Fled.

Me: How many time you have repeated this lie?
Mehmood: No I am not lying.

Me: Ok. Do you study?
Mehmood: No not currently. I used to go to a school when my mother was alive, she was very particular about sending me to school everyday.

Me: Why your father ran?
Mehmood: He sold our house as he was under debt and fled in the night to Mumbai. And in a few days we had to vacate the house.

Me: Ok you father went to mumbai to become a bollywood actor?

Me: How much do you earn in a day?
Mehmood: Almost fifty rupees(Flashing 20 Rupees by taking out from pocket). I don't ask for money in the day. My job starts in the evening.

Me: Do you ever pray.
Mehmood: Yes I used to pray at the near by mosque when my mother died. She used to tell me Allah has got a very big heart. He forgives everybody.

Me: why don't you pray now?
Mehmood: My elder brother tells me that now if I go to the mosque the gatekeeper will not let me enter and he will beat me.

Me: Do you cry sometimes?
Mehmood: Yes when I remember of my mother and when the shopkeepers beat me if I go near their shop.

Me: Do you have a girl friend.
