Photographer's Note

Two photos today. This high speed and hopping and tagging game was extraordinary as played by the young woman about to catch the smaller one. She was so athletic and fast and had all the grace of a lithe animal as she moved - a really masterful control of her body and the game. A tiger in a skirt! This is my second image from Vanasthali school, a tribal school near the village of Kanjod in South Gujarat.

My third image (in the workshop) is of two girls playing Kabbadi - another tag game played between two teams who alternate between attack and defence - one person penetrates the other's territory and has to tag one of their players and then return safely without getting caught - all the time (in one breath) saying "KabbadiKabbadiKabbadi".

This game got quite physical at times with more than one attacker literally biting the dust. The boys and girls of Vanasthali School are incredibly strong and well disciplined -and such fun!

Again apols for the low res but hope you can still appreciate the images and what they show.
