13th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Elder sister takes her little sibling down the steps. She is not a "Mother", but she is THE Mother. In most south Asian countries, an elder sister is like a helping hand for the Mother. I too was raised partially by my elder sister. On a side note, this image was taken at Vatsala Devi temple, Bhaktapur, Nepal. On 25th April, 2015, this temple was demolished by the earthquake. I hope the children are safe.
