The struggling smile

The struggling smile: People from hilly areas of Sikkim, India, collects tree branches and leafs to use it as a fuel source for cooking food. They work hard to collect such, rising up and going down to hill forests frequently. The physically challenged man is also in the same struggling job but still in joyous mood like most of the hilly people. The reflected light in the face from logged water in the road, the sustainability, the smiling struggle attracted me to freeze the moment.
