Against the Gravity

I met these young Rohingya boys playing a unique game where they touch the ball with their body and legs but not with hands. Somehow, I found the similarity of this game to the life of a refugee. Fleeing from motherland where both of their hands are tied to the mercy of government. In all these pictures boys are above the ground against the gravity which is a true specimen of their life as they always have to fight against the greater force.
