Met these smiling faces on the bank of river Ganga during my visit to ardh kumbh in Allahabad. I am surprised by their smiles they are pure and come from deep inside the heart, not superficial.
These are poor childrens and most of them are without parents and live on the earnings they get from the pilgrims. They are very brave kids with beautiful heart.
GOD BLESS THEM

Beautiful smiles all around, I agree with you about the beautiful heart. The flash has ruined this a bit but maybe you had no choice.

Hi Vivek. Beautiful portrait. Showing the gladness but also the poverty. Fine story told with great technique and situation underlined with tight composition and crop. A lovely photo. I myself have a similar kind of photo on TE with children from Eastgreenland. Good work this one, I like it a lot. Thank's for sharing. Regards Jens
