The fact that the child in the background is probably no older than 11 or 12, and he is making a "gun" with his hand. This is almost stereotypical of what American's think Indian children are exposed too daily. To me this picture shows more than just a cheerful activity.
Similar composition to yesterday.
Lone subject in the foreground with three background comrades in solidarity. I would guess that there are similar social dynamics.
@Michael Winsor A long Story behind that shot.... :)
