For a few rupees

Janai, West Bengal, India, 2017

The train had not yet fully stopped when three young adolescents rushed to meet it, their faces full of excitement and curiosity. They were ready to seize every opportunity that presented itself to them, even if it might only bring them a handful of rupees.

This scene reminds us that every opportunity is often accompanied by difficulties. While some may only see the challenges to be overcome, others, like these young adolescents, seize every opportunity with enthusiasm and optimism. They are ready to overcome any obstacles that may come their way, even if it's just for the sake of earning a few rupees.
