Photographer's Note

Festivals in India cannot go on without flowers.

This shot was taken on the day of Makar Sankranti at Chandpal Ghaat in Kolkata. People from the economically backward sections of the society take an oportunity of such festivals to earn a little more than what they usually do. I came upon such a lady, sitting on the street near the ghaat, and selling flowers to be used for Puja ceremonies. Ironically, these are the only colors she could affort for her world.
