Candid shot of a group of children and their mother. She is a day laborer, maybe staying below poverty line. They are very content with their small lives, but also afraid on the uncertainty of tomorrow.

These kids are not going to any schools, and world is their playground. They do not have toys with them. What they play with are leaves, barks and other things which they find around them.

I find the lighting a little harsh in this image. I also think the partially out of focus earthen area at the bottom of the frame also detracts from the image.
