Faces of India – 284
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…
I met this guard at Kiradu Temple Complex near Barmer, Rajasthan. The ice cold stern look made him look more like a statue than a human. It seemed he would merge into those walls of Temples of Kiradu Complex. To me his eyes seemed to connect with some distant form which could evolve out of nowhere. While we all, a group of around 50 people at the temple, were busy involved with activities of our interest, the guard seemed to get ready to respond and engage with his surroundings. Not just this guard alone but the other guards too wore the same stony look.
