As I was traveling in relative comfort in my Mahindra Scorpio with friends to Jeypour, I noticed this boy sleeping on his mothers shoulder, and hanging on tightly. He was resting in the safety of  his mothers arms, and didn’t wake because of the tooting of the horns, or the bounce of the rutted road, he knew it was safe where he was. I thought this was sweet, how trusting he was there.

    Families traveling on motorcycles in India was a common sight, but this was so unreal on that bouncy, noisy road to Orissa. How that baby could sleep under the circumstances was amazing to me! Glad you posted this picture on your website, Andrew.
