  • The photograph shows a close-up shot of the hands of two young children with autism. One of them is playing a rattle, the other a tambourine. The children are sitting cross-legged on the floor, and there are other children around them. We can’t see the faces of the children as the focus is on their activities. The photograph was taken during an event organized on April 3, 2017 in Kolkata to mark Autism Awareness Day (which was on April 2).

The event was organized by Transcendent Knowledge Society, an NGO that runs Wonder House, a day-care centre for children with autism in the Tollygunge area of Kolkata.
