Do you know how beautiful monsoon could be? Here in Bengal it’s our life giver, majestic in every sense, we born to be with it, to get drenched in the rain. I always wanted to write on rain, but for that I am in need of rainy photographs. Then once I decided to go to Sonargaon, our ancient capital. There I found a group of little boys playing in the water. They were so adorable, making water their second home with their joyous activities. It made me spent almost the whole day with them. I was on a boat and they were swimming, or running by the banks, and then suddenly I saw them floating there like a lily flower. It was an amazing moment; I haven’t seen anything like that in my life, a perfect frame. I tried to balance myself on the boat and took the photograph as steady as possible.
