This aged man was heading for Makar Sankranti Gangasagar fair and was halted at the make-shift camp near Babughat, Calcutta. The afternoon Sun after the meal was just fine to get lost in a fantasy once the "Indian-Khaki"(Indian version of cigarette-tobacco wrapped in special natural leafs) kisses the lips :)

What first struck me when I opened up this photo is the outstanding sharpness. This gentleman looks like he is ready to walk right out of my monitor. You have created (I don't like the word "capture" (an image) it sounds too passive) a marvelous closeup view of everyday life in your country. Excellent!
