Photographer's Note

This lady was performing some rituals on the sea front of the famous ganga sagar fair held this winter a few days before.she giving me sweet smiles,daunting stares and sometimes even making faces at me.but at a certain moment of ritualistic offering she had to loudly chant some mantras.She said that she could barely open her eyes due to the glaring sun.her face had assumed such a form due to the innumerable rituals she had to perform and long and difficult to pronounce mantras to chant.But this expression on her face suited my liking to a very good extent.the framing was purposely done to leave out the steel plate placard she was holding,so as not to drive away attention from her face.Hope you all like it.
