Older Indian men are equally photogenic, alluring and worthy of their own post as their counterparts, the women, depicted in my last post are. Let’s travel around India and take a look.
I often bring my tours to Amritsar as part of an extension. It is always a great last stop before departing from Delhi. One of my clients was in a snit over her broken, prescription glasses. Mr. Singh came to our rescue. He can fix just about anything but does specialize in glasses. He was very serious, never smiled but delighted my client with the work he did.
Pan is a mild but addictive stimulant that consists of assorted ingredients piled into a folded leaf that forms a small pouch. The addictive element is betel nut. The entire packet is stored in the cheek and savored as it liquefies. Over time it does serious damage to the teeth, as seen in this photograph.
Although this man is frowning, he didn’t object to this photograph being taken. I suspect that this is an expression that he frequently “wears.”
In the small towns and villages of India, just about everyone enjoys sitting outside in the afternoon sun or shade, depending on the season. Most people are approachable and it is always a fantastic opportunity to get out your camera. In the cities, the same is true but more visible in the residential areas. After all my many years of travel around India, I am still fascinated by this amazing land and its diverse population.
