India #40: Blue kids

@ Pushkar, India

 

Taken on the street in Pushkar during the Pushkar Fair. From my observation, these blue kids were controlled by adults to beg on the street. The adults were just sitting a few meters away and were involved in an argument with a shop owner when they were complained of, I think, blocking the traffic! I hope they normally get proper shelter, food and education. I gave them 20 rupees each after the shoot (although I don't normally pay my subjects)
