faces 275

A regular sight during monsoons in Bangalore. The man is selling umbrellas at a traffic signal. He expectantly looks at drivers of cars and bike riders to make a sale. Some do check his umbrellas but often return it after inspection or they bargain just for the heck of it. During my several trips across Bangalore I have not seen any of these sellers making a sale yet but I am sure they are making sales.
