Its 98, a riot was held between boro and other tribes at GOSAIGAON which is situated at the border of West Bengal and Assam state…I was assigned to photographed there…
On September 1998, 48 people were killed and over 500 houses were burnt as Bodos and Adivasis clashed in the Bodo-dominated Gosaigaon subdivision. Of those killed in the violence, four were Bodos, seven Santhals and 37 Oraons...
I shot it in a rescue camp…

I really dont know what to sy about this photograph..my heart bled seeing this animosity between humans..and I appreciate your effort to project the satanic side of humans for petty resons and the aftermath which is suffered mostly by innocent civilians and children..!!

There is absolutely no questions about your ability as a photographer and this one strongly proves that along with all your photos in the gallery. Very strong and bold work I would say.
