Photographer's Note

A little girl in a pensive mood as she watches other kids her age going to school. She isn't fortunate enough and she isn't the only one in this vast country of billions where education (or the lack of it) for the poor and underprivileged is a burning problem.
This picture was taken early morning at a place called Tung, a tiny station on the famous Darjeeling Himalayan Railway. The train passes through mountains and forests, brilliantly arrayed in rows of oaks, shining rows of magnolia and blushing rhododendrons. It stops every now and then for water, since it's quaint engine runs on steam. But each of these stops takes you closer to the luxuriant bounty of the Himalayas and the lovely people who stay there. It was one of these stops that took me to this girl.
