Phodographer Chinmoy Majumdar in Mumbai, India, November 2010

Chinmoy Majumdar said he took this picture as part of his second experience with the Dog Meets World project, this time at Snehasadan ( A home for homeless street children in Mumbai). He and his colleagues “teach English language to these kids for securing there job in future. And this is the project Michelle Obama is supposed to explore this week while President Obama conducts his diplomatic visit to India”.

Diplomacy comes in all forms and can be between citizens sharing and affirming through the power of a personal photograph. Join the DMW community of phoDOGraphers!
