Award Winner | Photo of the Day | October 23, 2012
This was taken in in a tribal village named Manipuri Para in Srimongol, Sylhet. I went there with a group who was making documentary on people living there. Early in the morning I started to roam around all over the village, as I wanted to know the place. After sometimes I found myself in front of few houses there. By tradition Manipuri people are very colorful, but they are speaking in their native language Bishnupriya Manipuri. Though I hardly understood what they were talking about, but they were very friendly and welcoming. This jolly old woman saw me and came out wearing a colorful dress, meanwhile, her shy grand-daughter hiding herself seeing my camera, took a peek. This is one of those moments when she peaked. And I didn’t miss the opportunity to take the snap.
