Tired after a hard day or tired of waiting for some one? This picture was taken during our drive through Mandya road. I took the pic from my car when we had to halt in a traffic jam. I saw him sleeping on his hands holding on to the grill behind him. How long can anyone sleep like that, I wondered. Yet, he seemed to be in deep slumber amidst the noise of chaos around him. I continued to watch him for the couple of minutes we were stuck there in the traffic jam.

What do you think of him?
