The boys were playing on the side of the road in Berhampore. It was probably because it was hot. Most of the boys were playing with their upper body naked. In the Indian countryside, it's not unusual to see boys playing cheerfully without their tops on. It's been hot enough for me to want to take off my T-shirt and walk around.
When I pointed my camera at the boy who was playing, he smiled and showed me his white teeth. He seemed to enjoy having the camera pointed at him. Another boy behind him was smiling too. When I saw them smiling, it made me feel happy to take photos of them.
