Faces of India – 236

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

faces_of_India_236Yet another ‘tender coconut’ seller from my collection of ‘faces of India’. He is from Ahmadabad, Gujarat. I feel so relieved when I spot them during my travels. The fizzed drinks are a strict NO for me; I have banned them from my life. I survive on tender coconut water or lemonades during my travels. What about you?

See one more tender coconut water seller here. Tender coconut water costs the same in Coorg, Ahmedabad and even in Bangalore.

    That’s a great initiative Indrani. Common people aren’t perhaps so common. Their stories need to be told.

    A face is an index of mind or is it not? Difficult to say, but easy to tell that your capture is precious.
