Faces of India

a series through which I intend to portray the various characters of my country whom I met during my travels. I bring back souvenirs, frozen moments from my travels, why not some memories of people I have met and interacted during the travels. Faces of India is a weekly series in my blog since MARCH 2011.

We spotted each other almost the same time. She fascinated by my camera and I by her jewelry. This was in Nakulnar village of Dantewada during their weekly fair. I was drawn towards the jewelry of the locals of Dantewada. One can’t actually call them tribal but they do live in the interiors.  I noticed the women wore similar kind of nose pins. Many women wore in both their nostril while some wore just one. This lady was willing to be photographed and if you observe the vertical frame her necklace is interesting too. But the way she had covered herself up I couldn’t ask her to show a bit of that. Anyways I was thankful to her for posing for my camera.
