For the visually challenged writer, the photo is of three young boys playing in a pond and splashing on each other.
What fun they had, their giggles and laughter echoing under the leafy canopy of trees.
Stripping off their shirts, they waded in, splashing each other, the droplets crystal clear, cool and magical on their skin.
Such joy in this simple pastime, they relished each precious moment as it was only allowed once a week.
All too soon, they exited the cleansing embrace of the water, redressed, and returned to their village, where everything and everywhere was covered in a layer of dust.
