“A farm woman works in her field of cabbage in rural West Bengal. Annapurna is the goddess of food in Indian mythology. This woman represents the millions of farm women who silently work in India’s farmlands to grow fresh produce. They work doubly hard – in the fields and at home tending to their families. Their hard work should teach us never to take the food on our plates for granted.” — Sudip Maiti
Congratulations Sudip for getting your second picture into the top 10 shortlist!
