I love these photographs. I belong to Delhi-6 and these kinds of scene are part of my daily life. Being a designer, i observe them closely and then a rickshawala shouts from my back “madam ji side ho jao….” Wherever i turn my eyes a new story with new color combination goes on… I would love to be part of your group where i will get opportunity to capture these day to day stories with a message behind them.
