Roadside Scholar

The Scholar

The Scholar

I noticed this man sitting quietly by the side of the road while walking down a busy street in Rajasthan. He was clearly lost in thought, engaged with what he was writing in his notebook. He didn’t notice me studying him either. I very much wanted to take his photograph but didn’t want to intrude or “steal” the shot. After walking by him and some deliberation, I turned back and asked him if I could. He smiled in agreement, did not change his posture and this is the result. It was a very easy exchange and it made my day.


About ninagrandiose

I am based in NYC but travel regularly to India and Mexico. Both of these countries feel like home. In India I scour the country in search of fabulous textiles to incorporate into my clothing designs. I sit back and let the ambiance and wonder of India seep into my consciousness so I can be inspired to write about what India is for me. I bring a limited number of people to India on exclusive and intimate tours of my favorite hangouts. In Mexico I take in the natural beauty that surrounds me and dance the night away. I constantly give thanks for all this and am pleased to share it all with you.
