Farmer 5 by khurafati
Farmer 5
Farmers are very simple and humble people. I believe so, because their work involves planting  seeds, nurturing them, watching them grow and keeping them pest free which is like parenting. It is a continuous process, they repeat it every season when they start a new crop. 

Monsoons brings greenery all around. I went out for a drive to the outskirts and I couldnt resist getting into the fields, interacting with them and photographing them. My grand father is a farmer and every vacation I used to go crazy wandering in the fields, spending hours spotting crabs, prawns, small fishes and snakes in the water logged fields. This brought back so many memories :) The sound of gushing wind, splashing water,a few bird calls filled the air. I saw a few needle like dragon flies hoveirng on the plants and said hello to a tiny little snake and on my way back.

I had been to Kashmir in 2010, and I photographed a few kids up in the mountains. Life in the mountains is tough, and none of the kids I met, got an opportunity to goto a school. They were very curious and wanted to know where I came from and why was I taking photographs. This is the 1st photo I clicked khurafati.deviantart.com/art/A… and when I showed her the picture, this was the reaction khurafati.deviantart.com/art/G…  That the probably the 1st time she saw her photograph, all her friends were jumping all around me to get their pictures clicked! I promised myself, that someday I would do something for the education of these wonderful kids in Kashmir. I started researching and came across this school in Breswana. Their Facebook page www.facebook.com/HajiPublicSch… I was in touch with the
Director of the school for all these years, but I could never save much to make it back to the mountains. Recently I saw a post for a volunteer opening on their page and immediately got in touch with them. After a skype call I was selected. I will be there from August till October end.

Looking forward to finally doing my bit and share my knowledge with the kids :)
