I don't recall seeing this wonderful image previously Rakesh - so I am thrilled you've resubmitted it again.
This is an amazing image and as Paul S has stated, there is a lot to see and learn from this image.
Great job!

Your images look like they're straight out of a magazine. They never fail to inspire and awe me. Did you just happen to come across this scene, or did you ask them to sit this way? Spellbinding either way!

Thank you so much my friends for your thoughtful words!
Jill, they were all sitting by themselves. It was 7 in the morning, I just noticed them, and there was no hint in my mind to capture them. The sun was coverd by a thick layer of fog. I kept shooting here and there. Suddenly the sun started showing up on their side. When I looked in the view finder, I thought this is something I am looking for. I moved and composed them and this was all by the grace of God I could do this.
