My colleague photojournalist Rana Chakraborty bumped into these kids in the bus. It was clear that the kids were Muslims by faith. They saw his camera and but obviously, out of fascination, asked him to take a picture. He was more than happy to oblige. While getting down the bus, the kids asked Rana if the picture would be published in the newspaper any time soon. He tried to explain that it might not be possible.
The kids pondered for a while and said, “Please uncle. Try naa. Yaa to ek kaam karo. Paper mein chaap do, aur neeche likh dena ‘Terrorist’. Okay?”
Guess we aren’t building a very good future. Are we?
