Contestants peek from the backstage during a performance at “Miss Little Idol 2010” in Kathmandu on Saturday, August 14, 2010.
It was Miss Little Idol 2010, where participating girls were of age between 8-13. I personally don’t like such pageant of small kids. It was an assignment. As i reached, the show had just started, introduction round. Most of the girls awkwardly catwalked in high heels and makeup to say “I want to be a doctor and serve poor people”. Hmm, teach girls to put makeup, walk in high heels, introduce them in the world of glamour and fashion and teach them to say to be a doctor. We’ll have glamorous doctors. Some of them wanted to be something else including one to who wanted to be a journalist. Anyway, the main part of the show was the performance, shown above in the photo. It was explicit to me, for the show where little girls who want to be ‘doctor’. It was like a bar dance. (I haven’t seen it in real, but just relating as the reputation it has). All the girls were peeking from the backstage and enjoying that dance including the audience, most of whom were the parents of the kids. Finally the dance was over and the girls were shouting ‘once more, once more’.
All the time i was trying to get the right time of the dance and the girls in the same frame in that flashing light.
