Faces of India – 258
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…
He is one of those people who love to get photographed, so perfect for my faces of India series. Neither of us knew each other but the simplicity with which asked to be photographed touched me beyond words. He knew very well he wouldn’t get a copy of the pic yet he happily smiled at the idea of getting photographed. He seemed mighty impressed with the camera I was holding. He wanted to know its cost. After hearing the cost he said you must be definitely getting good pictures with such an expensive camera. I nodded in agreement.
I asked for his name and now I am able to recollect only the surname he mentioned ‘Gowda’. His family has been living in this village for three generations. I met him in Ishwara Temple, Arasikere, Karnataka.
