I wonder how heavy the jugs are. Reply ↓ No idea. Reply ↓ This is a site that never fails to pain me. Actually there is nothing wrong if a child does some work to assist his or her mother to cook, wash utensils and fetch water. I remember doing that as a kid. Now me and my school going daughter help my wife cook quiet often. But the problem is the children I see in the photograph seem to be from a rural village and such children are not sent to school and are made to work from morning to night in kitchens and are often abused. This needs to be addressed by the society. Reply ↓ I agree with you. Reply ↓ Beautiful photo, thanks Joshi! <3 Gorgeous children. Blessings, Debbie Reply ↓ Thank you Debbie :) Reply ↓ You caught them with very natural expressions, Joshi. Beautiful. Reply ↓ Thank you Jane :) Reply ↓ Great photo! I wish these children had the barrels that carry 24 gallons and can be rolled to and from the water supply. http://www.spellboundinc.com/rolling-the-way-to-better-water-access/ Reply ↓ Thank you :) That looks like cool and easy way.

Reply ↓ Thank you Andy :) Reply ↓ Lost childhood…. 😶 Excellent shot though Reply ↓ Thank you :) Reply ↓ A lovely image. And this may indeed be hard work, but I find it refreshing to see young people out in the natural world, using their bodies rather than staring at screens. That, to me, is a lost childhood. Reply ↓ I think I totally agree with you cate. We think that the children in the cities have a great childhood.

Reply ↓ It is sad to see these little girls leading such a tough life. Reply ↓ Hmm. Reply ↓ Lovely shot, but it looks like hard work. And why no boys helping out? Reply ↓ Yeah, a little hard for them. Reply ↓ This shot reminds me of how profoundly their lives would change if they had treated, running water at home. Reply ↓ Yeah! Reply ↓ Contrast between color of dress and sorroundings came out very well. Reply ↓ Thank you :) Reply ↓ The very soil looks arid. But the girls add life to it. Reply ↓ :) Reply ↓ Love this catch !

Reply ↓ :) Reply ↓ I love most of your pictures, but there is something about this one… I think it is beautiful! Reply ↓ Thank you :) Reply ↓ Great shot! Sadly it´s girls work to carry the water. When I traveled across Laos I saw just one boy carrying water, he was blind so had had to go with the girls… I think it´s the same in India. Greets Peter Reply ↓ Hmm. Reply ↓ Nice shot. Reply ↓ Thank you :) Reply ↓ A fetching reminder of life’s lottery that for some, having fresh clean water is hard work, or unattainable. Reply ↓ Yeah! Reply ↓ Hard working children Reply ↓ Yeah!

Reply ↓ Thank you :) Reply ↓ Oh Joshi amazing to see. I wonder if my children now grown would have wanted this for their chores. Reply ↓ Thank you :) Reply ↓ wow, your photos are amazing.. Reply ↓ Thank you :) Reply ↓ I think their world is unimaginable to kids in North America. The photo tells quite a complex story – the gray areas in between, not the black and white or good and bad of it. Reply ↓ Great capture. Their expressions, their pose, all so natural. Lovely snap. Reply ↓ Wonderful Joshi! Reply ↓ Great captured. Reply ↓ Cute kids! Such grace Reply ↓ Such a good composition and tuned color. Reply ↓ Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
