At the Brick Factory

I visited a brick factory in Hoskote, Bangalore Rural District, but unfortunately the workers had stopped working for the day. Instead I met these very friendly people who apparently live inside the factory compound. They also work there. I asked my driver to ask them if they would allow me to take their pictures. They said yes. So I took few shots of them.

They may not have many things, but they have great hearts.
