While strolling around Pune, I saw a mother with a baby on her lap. The mother, wearing a nice bindi and big earrings, was lounging on the side of the road with her infant. I could see the black stuff under the baby's eyes. It looked like it was wearing a kajal to ward off evil.

As I was about to take a photo of the mother and baby, two boys came out of nowhere into the frame. They must have been looking for an opportunity to join the photoshoot nearby. These boys quickly barged in and were ready to be photographed even though they had not asked to be.

As a result, the mother was smiling bitterly and the baby was puzzled. The boys, on the other hand, seemed to be excited about having their photo taken.
