These are young girls rescued from the Red-Light districts of Mumbai. I cannot imagine what they have been through. Facing poverty, abandonment, and probably abuse, these girls have been brought to a safe place where they can find new life. Some were so anxious for me to take their photo. Others would beg and plead for me to "delete! erase!" I couldn't bring myself to destroy this one. Each face tells a different story.

This is a small girl of a servant in a small village where one of my relatives stay (Kundal in Sangli district, Maharashtra). She was so cute, shy but still liked the fact that someone is taking her photo! I was really thrilled by her eye contact (and also was depressed considering what lies ahead of hear). I just wish she get good education in future to lead good life
