Photo and caption by Amartya Mukherjee

Young boy at Manali mall. Manali is a busy tourist location in north India and this youngster earns his living by polishing the shoes of the well heeled visitors. The expression in his eyes and the lollipop in his mouth attracted me to the scene.

Location: Manali, Himachal Pradesh, India
