losing childhood

Little boy-man working-hustling with a rabbit! I shot this kid’s picture when he was trying to hustle my mom out of a few bucks. This is in Khajjiar, a beautiful place near Dalhousie

My mom played with the rabbit and he charged her Re 20 for it. The kid treated the rabbit like an accompaniment. Like an instrument. Although, I could see he was very gentle with the animal. Although he was biologically a kid, I am sure he would have pretty adult responsibilities to fend a living for the family. No time to be a kid really.

The loss of childhood is akin to murder of that person that child could have grown up to be. Make sure your kids don’t lose theirs.
