Photographer's Note

One would normally expect that a boy holding a rose and offering it to someone would be happy and bubbling with energy. Or in some cases, to be sad if the girl were to reject that symbol of love. I was, however, unprepared for this show of indifference.

As people enjoy the Arabian Sea-front, this boy of not even ten is again(as is his wont every evening) into the dreary job of selling a rose. At an age when he should be enjoying and frolicking, he has every reason to give that bored look.

Throughout the world, providence has snatched the smile of so many of such children.
