Faces of India – 137

He looked tired to me, but he cheered up the moment I took the camera to take his picture. After he saw his pic in the camera he asked if I was going to put in newspapers. When I told him it was for computer he seemed slightly disappointed, โ€œOh! Then I will not be able to see.โ€ Many times I have got this same response and I feel so helpless at that moment. Common man too want newspaper coverage.

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 can imagine how disappointing that would be.. if he can neither see nor share it. But he sure does make a fine subject. Great shot.

  11. Beautiful man, but, it is terrible that he won't see himself because of money.

  12. Joop Zand says:

    Very good photographed…… nice work again.

  13. Is there any other country like ours, where we see such a wide gap in the economic situation of people.

    Great pic though. And a great project.

  14. his eyes tells a million stories n uve captured it so well.

  15. Faces of India are numerous… You are capturing the portraits awesome.. keep going, someday will find you on record books ๐Ÿ™‚ all the best

  16. newspaper and the power of printed words has their own aura which internet cnt beat :0 nice capture.

  17. I wish he could know the fact that so many people have seen his photo online. Great photography, Indrani.

    I think what they want is a souvenir for themselves which they could probably show to the people they know. ๐Ÿ™‚ I sometimes go back to them to give them a copy of their picture ๐Ÿ˜€ but once a person told me to take pictures of his friends after I gave him, his copy ๐Ÿ˜‰

  19. Dont worry mam !
    We are already working on "BROADBAND FOR ALL plan" as part of our Telecom policy !If things go as planned It will most probably happen in 2020!
    You can tell them that internet has more audience including foreigners too!
    I too have faced this question once and I told the above. The guy replied me never to go for newspapers.. Only internet frm now even if he doesnt see! You can try it! But people differ, so do their reactions !
    (Humble suggestions)

    Great picture BTW (This sentence is getting cliched these days for your posts)

  20. Or you could have explained to him that His photo will be used in a bigger way other than Newspaper and Many will appreciate it.. ๐Ÿ˜€

  21. Nice Capture ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. he looks to me more like a sage ๐Ÿ™‚ nice click.

  23. Indrani, Print version still has it's own importance…I could feel it as I have worked as a news contributor..cheers!!

  24. What a great effort by you .. this photograph is simple and beautiful ๐Ÿ™‚

  25. It's a face worth being put up here … a face of India, indeed.

  26. This is a beautiful portrait.

  27. Shaivi says:

    A bright smile in the midst of the adversities of life!

  28. I don't know if I am talking oddly enough but I had a discussion with my friend about how a common man in India wants be popular and not to learn. This thirst to gain popularity keeps us terbulent in minds. This what I wished to share. Pardon me if it doesn't suit the context.

    The disappointment of the old man is so obvious… Common man, manages to fill his stomach somehow. From where would he get a Computer :D…. stark realities…

  29. What an expression! Great capture!

  30. Posing for the camera and to be famous is every man/woman's dream and so nothing wrong with him being so camera friendly. He surely has an infectious smile and the happiness in his fame is visible in his eyes.Nice click and as usual keep them coming. Would you be interested in clicking the pic of two monkeys my two brats are bugging me?

      Lovely picture in drain. Ha ha.. athenas take ๐Ÿ™‚ my little brat won't stand still but still I think indrani would find it easier to take a picture of her as she is quite patient and can take pictures of fast moving objects ๐Ÿ™‚

  31. Thanks a lot for the comments friends. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Athena and Preethi, if I get the opportunity I will definitely get your children framed… for my FOI series. ๐Ÿ™‚
