I was walking down a market place one sunday after noon when i saw this old man, sitting in front of a shut down shop, trying to find shade from the sun.
I went up to him to ask for a picture. He gave a very puzzled reaction. At first i though may be he doesn’t speak the local language but actually it was because he was so engrossed in some thoughts that I had caught him by surprise. I repeated myself again. He understood me this time and obliged for a picture. I told him “konjam sirungule thatha” (“smile a little grampa” in tamil) and this is how he smiled. He smiled even better when i showed him the picture in my camera.
