Faces of India – 117

A resident of Sunderbans, West Bengal. I failed to make her smile in spite of all our story exchanges. I even told her that her sari is good, of nice color and print.

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.
