Idle tears...




I met this little girl on one of my usual jaunts in the heart of old Ahmedabad. She sat there, comfortably ensconed in her grandfather's lap yet, inexplicably, and inconsolably, crying.

I tried the usual gamut of 'kiddy chatter' to get her attention and, maybe, make her give up the bawling. Nothing worked. Until I took my camera and started fiddling with the controls, that is!

This is a picture of her, tears still wet on her cheeks, but curiosity most certainly aroused. I'd like to think that after I walked away she forgot about crying for a bit.
