Photographer's Note

The shepherd boy is keeping vigil over his herd from a distance.
This is a typical ambiance of hilly terrain of Purulia district (West Bengal, India). Note the colour of the soil, it is reddish. Presence of iron-oxide is responsible for this. Though this area receives significantly less rainfall, thanks to high fertility of the red soil, they are not barren. The white dots behind the boy is “Mohua” (Madhuca longifolia). This is the most important flower for the local tribals. Collection and selling of Mohua is a common profession of the villagers.
