Photographer's Note

When Prince Kumar rode out of the black hole in a crane at 7.47 pm on Sunday, the applause was something Zinedine Zidane might have got if he had won the World Cup for France. The four-year-old's homecoming signalled the end of a human drama that had kept the nation engrossed during the weekend and turned him into India's most heart-tugging kid.

But it was the extraordinariness of Prince's ordeal that commanded eyeballs. On Friday evening, he slipped into a 53-foot-deep and nine-inch-wide hole while playing with other kids near his home. The hole had been created a month earlier by a contractor drilling for water in this parched village. The search was abortive, but the hole -- rather than being properly covered -- had been papered over by two sandbags.

Having fallen into this abyss, Prince spent the next 50 hours -- including his fourth birthday on Saturday -- on a three-feet shaft inside the dark, damp hole. But what made him a crowd favourite was his attitude. Although he did weep occasionally, Prince displayed a rare poise and courage that became a talking point among the village folks.

He was finally rescued following excruciating delays and several foul-ups. After creating a parallel 55-foot hole in a nearby well, bumbling officials creating a link tunnel took 13 hours to dig into eight feet thereby prolonging the kid's agony. First, they got the diameter of a ring wrong. This delayed the rescue by three hours. The link tunnel was also wrongly aligned, causing further delay.
