In pics: Children from rural Rajasthan capture life during COVID in camera 30 stades children's day

The birthday of India’s First Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru on November 14 is celebrated as Children’s Day to increase awareness around child rights and education.

On the occasion of Children’s Day, we bring you a collection of photographs clicked by children showing life around them during the lockdown. These kids from Rajasthan are associated with various NGOs like Jaipur-based SMILE Learning Centre and Vikalp, Udaipur, and they were part of a photography workshop conducted by UNICEF.

The participants ranged from 8 to 18 years and the aim was to teach them a new skill.

For many of these children, it was the first time they were using mobiles to take photographs and tell the stories around them.

They were taught the basic features and techniques of using the mobile camera. The children immensely enjoyed the workshop. They took to photography like a fish to water and their creativity shone through the beautiful and candid photos they took of people, nature and their surroundings.
