Photographer's Note

The Street Astrologer : This street image from Calcutta depicts the story of a street astrologer, who is engaged in reading a book or a diary note book. A Lot of stones and other talismans are lying in front of him,which he gives to a customer as per his or her need.There are horse shoes also as well as various sizes of rings.The astrologer is also called a "najumi " from the arabic word najm,which means star and hence the najumi can foretell your future by the position of your stars and planets.The various talismans and magic bracelets are made to give relief to the customer in bad times or to allow him to continue with their good times.Foretune telling is a good bussiness all over the world.It is only because we all want to hear good news about our future and the astrologer is trained to do that.Linda Goodman 's is one book that many of us may have read to acquire knowledge about our zodiac signs.It may be a science to some people,supersitions to many,but there is always good fun in knowing about our future.You feel happy when somebody looks into your palm and tells you that you will gain wealth very soon or that a beautiful girl will soon fall in love with you.You think of it and the astrologer will come up with a tailor-made reply for you to make you happy.After all ,each one of us crave for happiness.Happiness in each moment of our lives and who else can be better than an astrologer to give us the satisfactory result.
