the ladies were laughing at me as I was struggling to get away from a gang of children who wanted me to take their photo.

This is most certainly not the "best" photo I took during April, but it's a nice reminder for me of a great evening experiencing so many things that are uniquely Indian.

I love the apparent interaction between subjects and photographer - there is so much to see here, and so many tales to tell. The man lying on the mat adds a strong sense of contrast - the brightness of the women, both in clothing and projected personality to the greyness and dejection of the prone form. Inntriguing and, I suspect, a social commentary to unravel. A phot to return to.

Appropriate title vis-a-vis the colorful ladies and happy expressions...and yet languishing in the lower left is the one obvious male who is, shall we say, not so joyful...

Fascinating composition.
