Faces of India – 266

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


Can you make at least fraction of a guess about what she is doing?

I spotted her during the walking tour of Bangalore heritage sites during the event #makeheritagefun. Her hand on her hip, her bright dress crumpled at places, hair tied up casually with blue ribbons, her intent gaze made her look extremely smart. She was not keen about my photography, my camera or me photographing her. So? Could you make any guess?

She had taken up the role of her father. How proud and responsible she looked, I thought. Her father is a security guard at the site we visited, but had gone out for some urgent errand she told us. She had temporarily taken up his role and saw to it that we entered our details in the register meant for visitors. Not once did she take her eyes off when the details were being filled.

“You study in school?’ I asked her. “Of course I do.” She replied with a what do you mean? attitude.
