Faces of India – 99

A not so happy picture, I know… nevertheless this too is true like all my other pictures. It was taken from a distance. Taken in the busy streets of Bangalore where people were zooming past him in expensive cars. He slogs on like this day after day.

Faces of India, a series through which I intend to portray the various characters of my country. See more here.

    These are the faces that hurt. I'm glad you show them as well because they too are a part of India and the culture.
