I want to Learn. Not Work.

CRY (Childs Rights and You) ran an awareness campaign 'CLICKS RIGHTS' in 2013. Aim was to identify issues that under-privileged children, face that becomes a hindrance to go to school.  Worked on this project, covering few large slums and Government schools in the city of Bengaluru, with the aim to analyze and frame these issues through the medium of photography.


People attribute poverty as the only reason, but there are several hard-hitting ones, which is seldom known - such as, long distances to school, sibling care, child labour, lack of infrastructure, gender discrimination, non-functional toilets, harsh living conditions, shift in priorities among parents and families due to poverty, to name a few.
