In India is very usual to see people drinking the tea or better the chai in the plate instead than using the glass. I suposse is because the tea is too hot but is at least curious to see it all around the country. In this case the picture was taken at the Cattle Fair at Tilwara in Barmer district in Rajasthan.

I like the 2 guys drink tea one in the FG, one in the BG, with the same attitude. Almost an homothety!
The shepherd (I think he is) could be a litle more off-centered and a bit sharper
PS In page 5 of my gallery you'll find a post entitled: drinking tea the gujarati way
since your image was shot in a cattle fair in rajasthan, I would not be be surprised that these 2 men are Gujarati. The way they drink tea in a saucer is characteristic of this state

Jorge: easily one of the best portraits of the day - DOF is effective and the mutually complementary arrangement of your chai saucers is effective. Nice work, c
