Photographer's Note

I picked up these two little Kids on the road to Susunia in Westbengal where I went for a weekend trip with my friends.

I was pretty amazed to see these little kids having some grup by the edge of the road which is a two way road and at regular intervals heavy vehicles were passing at a great speed.The red attrired people in the bg are the karawias who take holy spring water from the susunia mountain base and walk all the way to a temple in bankura to offer it to lord Shiva.I will post more on Kawarias later.

Susunia (Bengali: শুশুনিয়া) is one of the famous hills of southern West Bengal, India. It is famous for its holy spring, its natural beauty, its rich flora and the rock faces on which many of the famous mountaineers of this region started their journey. It is one of the rich researve of medicinal plants too. Susunia is situated at the North-Eastern part of Bankura District.

I remember seeing another shot of this nature by Niraj where it was a father and a son who were sitting by the road..Lots have been written about the way people in rural India are living and the kind of dangerous life they r in with the advent of modern amenities into their daily life..

Well, the bottom line is I told them to get of the road so that they are not hit by any vehicle and they moved out but not before giving me this shot..!!!

Enjoy..!!
