Discrimination begins at birth. Children are subjected to the similar levels of social and class cruelties as the adults.

But, the childhood innocence and the childhood joy are the great differentiators when it comes to the issue – how do they deal with the discrimination that the life creates, and that their social and economic status exacerbates.

The purity of smile on their faces even if they do not have access to the comforts of life that even the kids of a lower middle class family have is as innocent as the smile on faces of kids from the well-to-do classes of a social set-up.

The childhood innocence is a great savior and leveler here. It is not that these children do not realize where they do come from but the universally carefree expression of the childhood joy makes anywhere and everywhere its playground; creates and converts anything into a toy to play with, obliterating the class divides.

The careless joy in their eyes is inspirational and it chants unspoken hymns about living a life with the sense of freedom even if the life is not with you circumstantially, when they ask for one more camera click, with eagerness and genuine smile on their faces that pulls me to them, again and again.

CAREFREE JOYS OF CHILDHOOD - is a themed photography series on my experience of the shared joy of life that I have, whenever I have the opportunity to spend some quality time with them.
