This is one of my favourite shots of India. Even though it was taken at the Maha Kumbh Mela festival in Allahabad in 2013 (which happened to be the largest gathering on earth and was attended by an estimated 80 and 100 million people over about a 5 week period), there is an incredible tranquillity about this shot of a mother and daughter waiting patiently for their donated meal.
