Photographer's Note

Playing ‘Rummy’ or similar playing card games for stakes amounts to gambling are viewed as social evil in India. The Madras High court (Chennai) held that playing card game (gambling) as illegal and punishable. Several poor slum dwellers are addicted to playing card gambling. I have captured this playing card gamblers in a slum in Chennai.
