Curious Little by Arpan Uzir (India)

2018. Guwahati, Assam, India
“I shot this image on the auspicious occasion of Eid in 2018, where people in hundreds had joined to offer ‘Namaaz’ to the almighty. As when I was capturing the beautiful moments, I noticed this little kid among the crowd standing curiously as others bow in prayer. He is too young to know the rituals, maybe, and stood there with innocence on his face. And all I could think is what might be going on in his mind. The confusion, the curiosity, which is pure at the same time is what makes it a special shot for me.”
