Cordoned off from all sides, Gandhinagar, the state capital where the Vibrant Gujarat investors' meet, launched on January 11, was "spruced up" by contract workers, many of are said to have been children. The photographs here, taken by a keen observer who sneaked into the "high-security" zone of Mahatma Mandir, venue of the summit, suggest how the Gujarat capital looked at night on January 10, around 9.30 pm, for close quarters. "Young boys were at work", this observer, who did not want to be identified, said, adding, "The photographs show how the area around Swachch (clean) Vibrant Gujarat spot was prepared, and by whom."
