"Brick on brick" : An acrylic painting of a child carrying bricks, on slices of real bricks.
."The inspiration came from a
in Calcutta, near my home", said Manick. "At first I was sad.
But soon I realized the child was
working out of necessity to supplement earning for the family. He told me he was going to school at night.
Dusts from bricks were all over his body, but they couldn't cover the faint smile on his face".
