Extreme weather affects two children’s lives in very different ways and shows how the power of nature can bring us together.
One girl. One boy. Their lives couldn’t be more different.
While she turns her shoulder to sandstorms and blistering winds, he cuffs his pants when heavy rains begin to fall.
As the weather becomes more severe, their families and animals must flee to safety–and their destination shows that they might be more alike than they seem.
The journeys of these two children experiencing weather extremes in India highlight the power of nature and the resilience of the the human spirit.
