JOY OF LIBERATION

: The children of the village in the vicinity are leaving their foot-prints on the Matla river bed at Canning, West Bengal. They are wards of the poor fishermen who struggle for their livelihood from morning to night. School-going is a far-off wish to them. These children help the guardian’s bearing nets, rowing boats, catching fishes and even to make reach the collections to the fish-depot. But their JOY knows no bound when they are free of work. Through my lens I have tried to depict the boundless JOY of their abysmal Happiness.
