[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Next to a well in northwestern India this child was washing clothes. Here in a country with great poverty the spirit of the people transcended their standard of living. I can imagine a child in America being given this job. "Waaaah! I don't want to. I want to go to the mall". Oh well, as I'm getting old all the younger generation always seems spoiled. I'm sure my parents who survived the depression would have said the same of me- and been right!!

Hi Thomas.. I know how it feels but thats the way it goes here... The parents send the children for work to bring an extra penny home.. Its feels bad looking at it. Thanks for capturing a Moment... I love the detail and the mood and the way the light is being played... Thanks again for sharing.

Take care...
- Hima.

I'm pretty sure it happens to most of us, developed nation kids are Spoilt!
