It felt great that our Short Trip to Rajabhatkhawa ended the exact way I wanted. When I first got my Camera, I didn’t think Portrait Photography would be such amazing. It was my trip to a picturesque forest village named Lepchakha in December 2017 that I realised the beauty of Portraits. Thus, I purchased my first prime lens; the Canon 50 mm 1.8 and it was pure joy since then.
When I chanced upon these amazing kids playing by the side of the road at Rajabhatkhawa, I decided to try my hand at Portrait Photography. They were full of life and it was a good half hour interacting with them. They were more than happy to showcase their skills. Of the tens of portraits I clicked by the side of the pond, I am sharing 5 of those here.

The kid on the left of the screen was showcasing his skills in the water which drew us towards them.

These kids were such amazing swimmers that really made me think how much skill we have in this land. Its just a matter of tapping the talent.

He was the shy boy who even tried shying away from the camera, but I didn’t let him do that.

He seemed to be a natural poser. Its just poverty that makes all talent fade away with time.

The same poser again. I really felt bad I didn’t have chocolates in my bag to offer them and there was not a single shop nearby.
