Initially i started this blog as a photoblog depicting pictures from all my travels. But lately i've realized that i need to share some of my travel experiences too. So here it goes.. celebrating Life and its wonderful experiences.

The unspoken expectations

23rd July 2011, New Delhi

I notice the guy sitting at one of the hot tourist destination in Jaipur and playing the ektara (with an expectation!). When I approached him and clicked his picture he asked for money. And I thought this might be how he earns his living hood in all probability.

There was a deprived look on his face but occasionally he used to smile (Not a forced one but a complete natural one) to the people around. I went to a distance and started clicking him. [The above picture is one of those clicks.]

I observed that occasionally he also used to rent out his turban and ektara for cash. People around him were finding it quite amusing to click themselves with him and his stuff. He was not at all shy. I tried reading his mind but didn’t succeed much. The only thing I could clearly see was his unspoken expectations from each of us.
