About The Image:
This photograph was taken in my trip to North East part of India. I visited Darjeeling, Gangtok & Pelling in this period. I was amused by the thing the way the younger sibling was having faith & trust with elder one. I found this thing almost everywhere in this region. It was nice experience to see the elder sibling taking care & forwarding hand of insurance towards the junior one. While moving to Changu lake from Gangtok I found this cute kid near the check post. I like his innocent eyes the assuring hand of his elder sister.
