Faces of India – 177

A gardener in one of the resorts I stayed recently. Somebody was kind enough to spare her a shirt so that she doesn’t spoil her saree at work. She was busy trimming the grass with the tool beside her yet she seemed interested in talking to me.

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.


Last week I had this small guessing game, asking you to guess his job, the only clue being his shirt, his uniform. Thank you so much for participating

The answer is: he is a waiter in one of the restaurants here in Bangalore.So many of you were close. Nisha made many guesses and one of them was right. Among my facebook friends Aloka was there with right answer.

    What a whimsical expression that beautiful lady has. We also have lady gardeners here in Tanzania and I think I should try to capture them. In South Africa women deem it beneath them to work in the gardens while the men won't work in houses! Thanks for sharing. Aw, and I thought your man last week was a musician! Greetings Jo
