Foto’s Blog: Intrigued in India!

Phodographer Rhia Bikshi in Chandigarh, India, January 2011

Rhia, a student at American University in Washington, DC, took the pictures while home over the winter break and noted:

“The children belong to underprivileged families living in and around the neighborhood. My aunt organizes classes every evening, mainly English, which the kids really seemed to enjoy. There were nine children and they were all in the age group of 5 – 9 years. They were incredibly excited about Dog Meets World and especially liked Foto the dog. One of the older kids was so intrigued that he wanted to learn how to use the camera. He was thrilled when he managed to take a photo of the group (the one with me in it). All in all, it was a wonderful experience, both for the kids and me.”
