A photo-story about children living in under-construction buildings in Jaipur. The high-rises are their homes but only for a while.
Parents work from eight in the morning to eight in the evening and at times even more. Amidst back breaking work, mothers run to feed their children, just a few months old, and run back to work.
Most of the children have severe health issues, from malnutrition to deformity, some have tuberculosis. With periodic shifting to a new construction site, they have little opportunity to grow out of their poverty and live in an environment that is safe and secure. Yet the buildings thier parents make are metaphors for progress and security.
The children have no notion of home. They do not know what it is like living 'at home', learning and growing. When these so-called 'homes' are constructed, the children move to yet another home...
...under-construction once again.
