Concept Behind the Picture
The tender embrace of the mother’s love towards her child can be clearly felt in this picture. Moreover this capture represents the traditional Nepali way of carrying a child.  Mother has secured her child on her back with a shawl and yet she has her hands around the child for  protection. This is the omnipresent love of a mother. A mother makes sure to protect her blood in any way she can. Talking about his capture, Anup says, “I even remember thinking about my own mother while taking this picture. Oh how wonderful a mother is!”
