With open confession of my inability to explain what he had in mind while he was photographed, i introduce to you this young friend who occupied a corner in one of those busy Chennai streets during a Temple festival.
For a change, i was insisted to photograph by an unusually overwhelming smile that all of a sudden switched over to.........i don't know what.....!
He belonged to that tribe of hunters from northern India who were prohibited entry into forests and were forced to migrate and take up selling for a living.They are seen living now more in the southern region.
That plaything on the forehead probably pointed to a whole lot of unsold products....a point of concern.
But it is a fascinating fact that this selling community persists inspite of weak responses.
The Papershade protected nothing while the umbrella played the selling platform..
