It was in Shakhari Bazar, during the time of Holi – the festival of color, where I saw this kid. Covering with all the colors, he was playing there with his friends, celebrating and throwing colors to everyone. Then when I was about to take his photograph, he suddenly stood still and was looking directly towards my camera.
