Powercut, exam next day but still they can read!

this is my first upload Education in India series. I faced this when I was kid and even now we can see these. Powercuts are common in India now and the students are their worst targets. But kids are used to it and they keep candles ready for the next time!!

I saw kids sharing a candle for reading. I did my home work and during next power cut I set my camera , gave some instructions to kids ( of course all I asked them to concentrate on their books !!! )

Camera: Canon 1000D, f5.6, iso400, 3.2 sec, a small crop otherwise as is
