Candid Camera: Eye of the Storm
Location: Panchkula, India
Moving image: I usually wander off for long walks in the city. It was during this time that I realised a sandstorm was approaching. In search of interesting imagery, I reached this vast expanse of land and saw almost 20 people playing cricket. They continued irrespective of the storm. Whenever a strong wind would pass, the players would just cover their heads, wait for it to subside and then resume their game.
I found this very inspiring as the players didn’t lose hope. I think that is what a person’s attitude towards life should be.
