The photograph below was taken in a small village near Mumbai. This group of children is sitting on the dry grass, playing with sticks. Certainly better than toy guns!
This little boy, photographed in Mumbai, has found something in a pile of mud and garbage he is fascinated by. His sister looks on.
The little boy and girls below have nothing to play with except themselves and a small balloon. They are sitting on a hand-cart on the streets of Ahmedabad.
