"I travel to Varanasi every year for the past 6 years and every time I am there I am mesmerized by the energy of that city and the diversity of life there. Walking the streets and documenting daily life is a treat. I stumbled upon a group of children one afternoon and joined them in their games. They always love attention and their playful nature comes to life instantly. The boy on the image had a wonderful attitude all along. When I approached him he instantly grabbed the little lamb to pose for an image. The way he held that lamb left me speechless... he made me feel as if he was holding his prized possession, his childhood stuffed animal that gave him so much comfort. His eyes, on the other hand, betrayed a less carefree self, one he lost years ago."
