This photo was taken during my annual vacation at Kerala, India. It was my native village Engandiyu. I took this photo near a backwater, in August 2009. These boys were very happy and playing with this bicycle. When I saw this, I remembered about my lost childhood. Now I can understand one thing very well that is when you finally go back to your old hometown, you find it wasn’t the old home you missed but your childhood.
