Very intense. I like the texture. Makes you wonder about a not so distant future were water will be even more scarce.

Great candid pic. You've done a great job capturing these expressions. It has a very personal touch.

One of those marvelous stolen shots, Animesh, so Leica...ya know? That stout fellow staring right at you anchors the shot, allowing us to wander among the rest of the scene.
Superb, quite simply.

Interesting title for this shot. The various expressions are well captured. Much activity is shown at once, adding to the feeling. Great quality/crispness too.

Man, you can pack your frame. Like a sine curve my gaze starts from the left with the man facing us and follows the peaks and the valleys of the frozen moments and expressions and ends on the woman facing back. The background is also very intersting although not as strong as the foreground. Love the way you captured the man looking at you through the small opening between the two guys in the foreground.

Reminds me of the curse of the Arsenic about which nobody who is anybody gives a damn ...
It has nothing to do with us, does it?
I thought this WS could be an alternative view.

Your BW pictures tell me that I should also try BW again. Of course this one is a high stantard picture in the Magnum style, and all desaturated pictures taken with digitals do not give the same effect

Very busy scene, with lots of action going on at different levels, but still a composition that can be read easily. Perhaps the fact the characters on the foreground are perfectly visible, with no overlapping, help us to "move" our eyes within the interaction between them, and almost become part of the scene. There will never be enough talk about water as a rare resource, and there is a huge education work that has to be done all around the western world to make people realize water is a crucial problem in most parts of the planet.

I simply love this shot, the crowded place, the face expressions and I miss India (and west Bengal specially) when I see such photos.
