I saw her and her sister in a deep Naxalite area in Jharkhand. When my vehicle stopped, she and her sister ran away in fright and hid behind a house. From there they peeped, curious that it was a lady stepping out with a camera. Slowly they emerged and even more slowly they came to me. This girl would not lift her head for a long time but finally she did and won my heart. This photo is dedicated to the hope that lives in our hearts in spite of all pain.
