I found them in a cemetery of Englishmen in Berhampore, West Bengal. I saw them using a revolving iron gate for their play. They used the gate as a miniature of merry go round. They are poor and needy childrens, but they haven't loose their smiles. In this shot you can see that they are happy enough in playing with the gate. I liked the mood very much and took this snap. Hope you'll like my effort tried.

Are you still in Murshidabad. I am now in one of the Villages in Murshidabad. But its very sad I am not able to take pictures here. Well Nicely collected image. Very nice smile on their faces. All your models have very well. One of them is very shy. Good capture.

A good tightened framing on all these smiling faces which allows you to eliminate to the maximum a luminosity which does not appear easier. In all the cases these comrades seem enthusiastic to be the principal subjects of your photograph. Pleasant glance, thank you Subhendu.
With all my friendships and with soon,

Bonjour, cher Subhendu,
Du bout des lèvres ou à pleines dents, chaque sourire est unique. Prémisse du rire, il est le témoin d'une émotion intérieure. Un rayon de soleil au milieu d'un visage qui ne laisse pas de marbre...
Une belle image, bravo !

A happy scene very well caught in this composition. The looks and the smiles of these girls, in spite of her poverty, are an excellent example of how to continue forward opposite to the adversities, and this feeling is perfectly illustrated in your photo.
I like the spontaneity and the vitality of the image.
It's a nice work, my friend.

Beautiful portrait of these four young ladies.
Children will always find a way to play, they can turn almost anything into a toy. We all were children, so we all used to be like that, a pitty most of us aren't any more.
