Photographer's Note

Begging for small change onboard a moving train from Jaipur to Ajmeer.


Did she know whom was I, where was I from and what was I doing sitting alone carrying a strange thing around my neck, and what's the click sound it made. She had no idea or might be I was wrong??

Didn't compose or anything and they were not aware I took the split second shot, camera was on stealth mode under my jacket and the only light source was coming from the open window. It's a tough call and somewhat a hard hitting when faced with this situation, but I love this picture as it helps me to be more content with what I've got. On a personal level I too feel, that the trains are built on the back of the poor and yet they probably feel that they are doing a favour 'allowing' begging inside their doors.

I believe, photographic journey has an ugly side to it too, which I am sure that many would not want to hear or view and this shot portrays that.
Poverty shows no respect for age ...

Food for thought perhaps!
Cheers and thanks for looking
