I was working with an NGO who build schools in places where there are none. This little girl walked up to me holding a piece of cardboard, almost like a security blanket. Her curiosity for the camera was stronger than her apprehension. I took the picture almost as a reflex. Little did I know that within ten days the entire country would go into lockdown, and with it any chances of her going to school. While most photographs capture the present moment, some rare ones end up capturing the future.
