 They bring you smiles,

even when you are worn and weary,

from life’s incessant rigour;

laughter amidst distressing hours.

They are your sunshine

breaking through the shrouds of dark clouds;

a treasure trove of reminiscences past

to cherish when you are ripened souls.

They bring you love,

and teach you a thing or two of life;

bring you hope

for a ‘morrow that is beyond your grasp.

And though they are yours,

they belong not to you;

for they are the bearers

of tomorrow.

Man at work…….come rain or shine

Images of the hard-working  section of the population of a little known town called Imphal in the border state of Manipur (India) adjoining Myanmar. Less fortunate but the most hardworking indeed.

Took out my camera to indulge in a little creativity after what seemed like a long time hiatus. But sooner than I manage to take a few shots, the overcast sky turned to a downpour and then into a drizzle. So I decided to do a little street photography capturing those going about their lives despite the callous weather, toiling … come  rain or shine.

NB: I have tried my best to maintain the anonymity of the subject.
