Utensils, knives, spades, frying pans everything handmade. The male counterparts make these at home and ladies take it to the market to sell. Tough life as nomads they are always ready to move. In Delhi they can be seen in versatile profiles from selling beads, magazines, pirated novels, paper napkins, lighters at Traffic signals and busy markets, selling hand made idols during festivals and even selling herbs inside tents with big banners "Khandani Pahari Dawakhana", which broadly means they are into family business of prescribing medicines and herbs from mountains.
Got her in Old Delhi in a very busy market.
Thanks for Visiting

this woman has also an incredible glance,her eyes are superb!A pity to see the man's back behind her,maybe you could have done a crop to do a square format to remove him!Anyway,the colors and the light are very beautiful!

Very Good shot of an Indian Tribal Woman. The eyes are completely in focus and the light is well used. I just had view point of the title. Since, no utensil was seen, i thought its more appropriate to title her as a Tribal Indiam Women rather than utensil seller. In view of that I have crpped her and offered a WS. You may like to see it. But picture shot by you is very good.

Quite some gaze of this lady, not really the engaging kind, looks like
Again an excellent quality of this portrait. A bit bothered by the person at left showing us his back, not quite out of the way and neither really in
Have a nice day

Some will find me obsessed... but I find she looks like Rachida Dati, when this one is furious, haha! I don't know what kind of ustensils she sells but it seems it is kalashnikovs! :D
What a freezing look she sends! You was brave to confront with your short lens. Does she protect the military behind; that tries to escape? LOL
An excellent stolen counter-portrait, with a very good sharpness and fine colors. You managed well to capture this outstanding expression.

Lovely image with adequate clarity, i like the piercing light falling on the side. Textures, shades and sharpness are superb, Shallow dof making her standout and her eyes intensify the effect. Great capture, Tushar. TFS
