Faces of India – 192


A ‘tender coconut water’ seller. On a hot sunny day they are like gods to the thirsty travelers along the national highways. We spotted his little shop after several kilometers of drive, so naturally there was a crowd of buyers around. No time to pose for crazy photographers. 

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
