Nice shot with an easy reading thanks to the proper point of view and with each element well placed inside the frame. So that, we got both the action and the environment.
In more there is this nice lightning.
That is fun, is the red basket in the top right corner. We could think it is disturbing, but in fact it is giving its color impact, balancing with the green leaves and the yellow metal basket in bottom.

I have a feeling there are quite a lot of pictures on TE of newspaper-reading Indian street vendors. I have posted some myself and have memories of seeing several others, but rarely any from other countries. It seems like an interesting cultural feature. This is a good POV which allows me to read over the man's shoulder (if only I could understand the language). The inclusion of fresh green herbs makes the picture very appetizing.

I love street life photography and always high on my agenda. No wonder this catches our attention and an astute observation on your part. This is the greatest fun about photography, the subject is always there and it's up to us to observe and make the right move. The focus on main interest is spot on and the strength lies at the third intersection - his full concentration thru the glasses. It's also lovely that you managed to isolate from the rest - uncluttered thus the viewer is directed straight to the point of focus separated from the background and the green veg is nicely juxtaposed and balances the compo. Your quick on the draw, the knack for making happy unexpected discoveries and well done on exploiting the opportunity one of those shots that keep us looking... and looking...
Very well done street photography :))
