Great noborders 2008-03-05 11:17

Hi Avishek, I love this photo and the beautiful smiles of those boys, the colours are splendid... But I don't understand the note : are those children really destitute, taken care by an organisation (and on a tour to the countryside ?) Or on the contrary, are those children living in the neighbourhood and by "destitute", you meant that they were coming from poor families ? I feel very curious and would be happy to read your reply !
Otherwise, it's a very friendly photo - the BG is a bit overexposed, those technical details don't bother me too much -
Compliments !

Default To noborders: An orphanage

Hi Catherine,

I should have used the term orphanage to make it more clear. There is an institution or 'Ashrama' which provide shelter to these orphan kids and it depends solely on the donations from the people.

Apart from studies these kids are also involved in the other day to day activities of the 'Ashrama' like collecting woods from the jungle, cleaning the premises etc.

Great ! I am now satisfied with your clarification and I hope that they'll have a great future (hoping that they are frequenting school regularly : if not, please tell me, I'd like to know !)
