Faces of India – 136


A security guard in the hotel we stayed in Chikmagalur, Karnataka. He claimed he was from north of India, staying in Karanataka for past some years. I appreciated his moustache.

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.
