Photograph of Jaladhar Munda, Purulia district, West Bengal, India.
I met this person during one of my vacations to a place called Murguma in Purulia district, West Bengal, India. Jaladhar was of around 60+ age, more spirited and fit than any urban Indian youth less than half his age. He was employed by the resort we had stayed in during our visit and ran errands for any little to big requirement. After sunset when we relaxed in the grounds he came and started a casual conversation with us and we learnt that he had been an eminent Chao (tribal/folk dance) dancer but with local art forms fading from the busy lives of the people of India, his livelihood became difficult and he took to other occupations.
This photograph was taken on a Canon PowerShot A620, compact camera in very less light.
Post processing effort - tight cropping, little level uplift.
PS. - This is the second photograph of this person posted in TE. This is shot from another angle so posting it as a different photo.
