“A little girl shares with her brother an ice-cream she got from a generous passer-by at a handicraft fair in Kolkata. Human beings’ emotional connect to food is very strong. We seem to remember and recall foods or meals that come attached with some sort of emotion. ” — Barun Kumar Thakur
Welcome to the top 10 shortlist, Barun!
Watch this space as we announce our last finalist soon.
The winning pictures will get cash prizes worth $350, $250 and $200 respectively. The top 10 finalists will be featured here, on Nature India’s blog Indigenus and in our subsequent annual issue.
