Entry Description

Life is not easy for some unfortunate lives. It alway challenges and test the endeavor of survival. This endeavor start from very early of their life. For them world is a place of struggle and for them this is not a bed of roses. I have been capturing some lives while they are sleeping or resting. The world can offer them a bed of a rotten mat to a waste land working child, a steel bed to a child worker of steel factory, a sleep with snakes during a show to snake charmer's kid, a bed beside a running train or a child shopkeeper's quick nap in his small shop. Struggles are part of of their tiny lives.
