‘It is not too difficult to read in the image the implication that this is not undertaken for either excitement or as fun. The children are unwilling partners in sharing this responsibility, as their expression and posture reveal, though they probably also realise that there is hardly an alternative. Chittaprosad has carefully chosen a compositional structure within which he consciously arranges the figures in specific gestures to communicate the hapless situation. The viewer is placed in an implied position facing the boatman and his children head-on, almost as if one were a passenger on the boat, and thereby made conscious of averted eyes and the turn in the heads. The massive mast that cuts across the height of the print takes on the identity of a dividing line between adult wage-earning responsibilities on the right and a loss of innocence on the left.” Sanjoy K. Mallik writes this in his monumental work on Chittaprosad, published by DAG.
