Photo gallery and slide show: The photos in this gallery mainly depict children from the villages in Himachal Pradesh's Kullu Valley region, who in general have a better quality of life than those in poorer parts of India. Although they have to do household chores and work in the family fields like all Indian kids, most go to school (HP has one of the highest literacy rates) and have plenty of opportunity for playing outdoors with their friends in and around their village, usually easily satisfied with improvised toys and games such as cricket with a home made bat, or an old bicycle tyre rolled down a hill. Children in India are almost a national obsession and are usually showered with love and affection, but while western parents are often overly protective and restrictive of their childrens activities, Indian parents place more trust in their society and their kids ability to use common sense and to learn by experience.

The lot of a child in India is extremely variable, with children of the urban poor especially vulnerable to exploitation, and much work is done by NGOs such as lifebuilder and Voice of children to improve the life and prospects of India's less fortunate children.
