Naughty kid

This photo of the kid was shot while I was on a trip to Asthavinayak Temples in Maharashtra with my blind group of friends. We had hired a bus and were a group of 25 visually impaired families. 

We started of with Mayureshwar Temple, Morgaon, District Pune followed by Siddhivinayak Temple, Siddhatek,District Ahmadnagar, Ballaleshwar Temple, Pali, District Raigad, Varadavinayak Temple, Mahad, District Raigad, Chintamani Temple Theur, District Pune, Girijatmaj Temple, Lenyadri, District Pune, Vighnahar Temple, Ozar, District Pune and finally ending at Mahaganapati Temple, Ranjangaon, District Pune. It took two days for us to complete the tour. 

Going back to the kid’s picture, he was a very helpful kid but at the same time very naughty. He would run around in the bus, jump up and down. He would make noise; shout and would do all sorts of other things. If anyone scolded him, he would just smile at that person without getting scared.

This time, when I marked him, he was behind the steering wheel of the bus and was playfully imagining himself to be a driver. I scolded him to get off the steering wheel and managed to take this picture. 

Whenever I think of the Asthavinayak tour, the first thing I remember is this naughty kid
