Etched in my memory 3

Posted by
Devi (Chennai, India) on 23 August 2016 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

I met him on the steps of a Temple. He sells items like clay lamps, bottles of honey, ghee, rose water etc., garlands and a variety of things needed for worship in a Temple. He wants to stand on his feet and work till he is tired.... though his kids want him to rest .
