The Old Man

On my recent visit to Jodhpur, I went to the famous Mehrangarh Fort. Inside the fort, while I was marveling over the architecture and the times of yore, I spotted this very old man posing with his big moustache, smoking a hookah. He was the crowd’s attraction with many lining up to take his pic. Some paid him a meagre amount for his pose and others did’nt even bother. As I zoomed in on his face to take a close up shot, I sensed a melancholy in his eyes. I felt that the old man had probably seen better days than posing for unknown people in lieu of a paltry sum of money.
