On the morning of Eid, my friend and photographer, Arnob Das and I found ourselves in the middle of Chawri Bazaar on our way to Jama Masjid. Namaz e Eid-ul- fitr had just ended when we arrived and the streets were thronged with men dressed in white kurta pajamas and skullcaps, who stared strangely at the heavy DSLR cameras in our hands.

The air around us rippled with chatter and laughter. Men stopped to offer Zakat (charity) to the people who sat on the side of the road for alms. Once we were through the gates of Jama Masjid we saw women, children and mostly men sitting on the steps, in conversation.

In this festive aura, while adults stood around and chatted
