    The poverty in these photos breaks my heart – such poignate images captured so well.

  • thanks very much for your comment on the photography Master Jim, but the pictures should not break your heart – these are mainly very happy people. They have very different occupations – and preoccupations – to most people in the western world, and they have difficulties, some of them severe, and beyond their control, but they have a very strong and close sense of community.

    These are intended to be positive, and optimistic pictures – I hope when you look again this dimension stands out!

    Well captured . I don’t think you can understand the way India is untill you have been . You are right they are very happy people with a very strong family influence and as you say a close sense of community .Much more so than here in England . We love India .
  • thanks lilian – i sometimes think you can’t really understand the way India is even after you have been several times!
