The Girl in Red

I took this shot in my home town. When I went for a walk along the river side. People who live there are not financially solvent. Even then they have this amazing smile on their faces which lights up there surroundings. This girl in Shadow. her bright coloured dress, the little grin on her face, the yellow coloured saree (traditional dress) of her mother inside the house all these things tell their story. They are happy with what they have. They know the real meaning of happiness.
