Photographer's Note

Ram Singh is not from the city, he has migrated from a far away state in India, looking for livelihood. There are millions like him, eking out a living in a difficult environment. That he sports a hint of a smile, in not very pleasant circumstances, goes in favor of him in this photograph.

The business paraphernalia is too modest, just a wooden base, supported by a sling around his neck. The items on sale are the raw materials, including some green chillies, tomatoes and a local food called 'bhel'. These will not be sold as it is, but will be concocted into a delicious mixture. Bhelpuri is a cheap snack much in demand by people of India.
