I got few local kids in my frame from one of the largest wildlife sanctuary in Bangladesh – Rema Kalenga Forest. They live there, despite of proper education and facilities. The forest isn’t scared them at all. If you ever visit there, you will find them playing and watching outsiders curiously. I was an outsider there, so they looked at me with lots of questions in their mind. I tried to frame their story of life with my camera, the story of forest kids.
