Faces of India - 99


A not so happy picture, I know... nevertheless this too is true like all my other pictures. It was taken from a distance. Taken in the busy streets of Bangalore where people were zooming past him in expensive cars. He slogs on like this day after day.

Faces of India, a series through which I intend to portray the various characters of my country. See more here.

These are the faces that hurt. I'm glad you show them as well because they too are a part of India and the culture.

its really sad to see guys carry loads like this, even in these days... but they have become such a part of the scene that most of us hardly notice them any more...
