Passing through Tingmoo valley in South Sikkim, we came upon this little school. Children were divided into two classes. There was a teacher in charge of the class of younger children. She did not mind a little break. I chatted with her, and she was happy to tell me about the school. Meanwhile the children were jubilant about the interruption to lessons. This is a mundane scene which no one can fail to identify with.
I thought of turning this into a B&W photo. The variation in light is makes it look interesting even so. But then I realized that I wanted to retain the green of the sweaters and ties, and the grey of the wall and trousers.
