14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Undying Hope !

This photo was taken when I was on my visit to Ujjain Maha Kumbh Mela- A famous Indian Fair- which is held once in 12 years. He was a native of the very state in which it was held and had come to visit the fair. He seemed to have the charm and innocence of a child. despite the poverty which he lived in, there was something very hopeful and special about his eyes which compelled me to capture him.
