Faces of India – 168

The old gentleman was waiting for more passengers. Instead of taking the back seat he seemed to be keen on sharing the driver’s seat. Till the auto rickshaw driver gets 3 or more passengers towards the same destination he will not start his vehicle. This is often the case with shared hiring autos.

I liked the look of (im)patience on his face. I took the pic from a distance and he isn’t aware of my act.

characters of my country whom I met during my travels. See more here

    I love the angles of this shot. It says so much. Do the decorations on the bus have cultural significance?

  12. Hi friends, thank you very much for your comments!

    Hi Flygirl, It was our independence day that day, so the auto rickshaw was decorated.
