Photographer's Note

Two little girls frolicked around the couple of mud huts. Hard to believe that the huts were only models, because they were exact replicas in shape, size & form. These mud hut structure is typical of rural West Bengal (my home state). You may notice the mask hanging behind the girls on the outer wall of the hut, behind the ladder. This mask is used for Chhau, a mask dance, performed in certain areas of West Bengal.

The girls looked like sisters, twins to be precise, and would not have been more than 10 years of age. They were playing, climbing up the mud stairs & climbing down again. They were full of life, vibrancy & innocence, as one would expect from children of their age. Seeing me taking their picture, they giggled & burst out in laughter as if this was something funny. Like their innocence, even their joy was unlimited.

Dedicated to Isabela and Francine.
