Photographer's Note

Stray dogs in India lead a very dramatic life. From the instant they are born to the moment a freak accident puts an end to it, stray dogs are in a perennial struggle for food, shelter, against diseases and protection from a few who do not take so kindly to stray dogs.

This was shot in the Eastern Jain temples of Khajuraho, Madhya Pradesh , India .

I found an interesting contrast in the expensive cameras clicking away a malnourished bitch feeding a liter of six. Chances are half of these puppies won’t survive.

Nevertheless, our mother here, was extremely camera friendly and blissfully oblivious to the shutters and was thoroughly enjoying this ‘5 minute’s fame’ before she again leaves in her pursuit for food so that she has enough milk for her babies.

Good luck to her!

Thanks for stopping by...
