Faces of India – 263
Faces of India,
a series through which I intend to portray the various characters of my country whom I met during my travels. See more here…
He is Chief Minister Siddaramaiah of Karnataka, India. I got the golden opportunity of taking his photograph when he came to inaugurate the Grand Mercure Hotel of Mysuru. I was there on assignment to do the hotel review. I had plans to take more good pictures of him but had to be satisfied with this one. Chief Minister Siddaramaiah came and went like a breeze to the event! He was there at the event for hardly ten minutes. He cut the ribbon and unveiled the foundation plaque of the hotel.
While we all expected him to speak a few words to the crowd that gathered there he bid goodbye to us. All of us were a bit disappointed. This event was some how fitted in to his busy schedule. I must say the hotel and hotel staff is lucky to have such an esteemed guest to the event even though it was for just 10 minutes.
