17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel

It was a winter evening in a Bengal village. I was on my strolls. A village boy sitting outside his home was holding close his pet hen. The goat sitting nearby also belonged to the family. The moment was very poignant, with the eye to eye communication between them. It was almost like a conversation going on and then it stuck me, you do not need language for communication, love and compassion can do it effortlessly. Born with such humanity surely better for the world.
