Photographer's Note

Got him at the yard of the temple at Dahapara Dham, near Ajimganj, Murshidabad, West Bengal. The old temple (named Jagatbondhu Dham) is now a days re-built with marble stone decoration. You can see it at background. This man was busy in cleaning the yard with singing some song regarding god. I captured some shots without his concent from distance and slowly reached near him to capture some portraits. He suddenly closed his hands with the posture of namaskar just after seeing camera (but not in this shot). He is the believer of God Krishna and so, wearing the chain of Tulsi (osimam sativam). He is a simple man living a very simple life (he showed us the room where he used to stay with another man, and it is too simple), but he keeps him smiling always. Now I am sharing this shot with you. Hope you'll like it.
