In Bangalore, India, I went for a walk in Lalbagh area where I found a lot of beautifully painted walls. I noticed the girl in my picture was busy talking on her phone, and the background somehow reminded me of all the verbal abuse girls face in their daily life. Without hesitating I captured the moment. The real reason why the murals are made is to prevent people from urinating on the road and also giving the area a very colorful look.
