Faces of India – 227

I met her at Lal Bagh, Bangalore. She is one of the cleaners of the garden. I watched her for some time doing her duty very diligently; taking care to see no dry leaf or twig lay scattered around the sand sculpture of Bharat Ratna APJ Abdul Kalam. When I requested her for her pic she said everybody takes pic of Kalam Sir. (Noticed her hand that held a broom, adorned with glass bangles?)

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

  18. I love this series! It really is the people who make the strongest memories of a place. While in Mumbai, it was a woman selling souvenirs in front of 'the gate' and the Taj hotel, that caught my eye and warmed my heart. You'll be seeing her in a future post!

  19. Wow.I love her bangles (I'm a big fan of wearing dozens of bangles in the hand) and I love the way she stands confidently 🙂

  20. Kudos to her & to you as well Indrani for taking her picture and thus giving message to appreciate the work of everyone!

  21. So many bangles! Are they heavy? It's great that she is such a diligent worker.
