Faces of India – III

DSC_0159

This baba was sitting at the entrance of the main gate of the Jaisalmer Fort and was quite happy to pose and even asked me to pay him something since he had posed for me. Whilst the baniya in me just gave a ten’er away, our guide Mr Lalit Vaishnav had a mischevous smile on his face and whilst he was smirking and I asked him he told me to finish my business with the baba and that he would tell me about him later.

As soon as we left the baba behind and walked ahead our guide told us that this Baba has some 6-7 trucks, woh bhi those trucks which have 16-20 tyres that run between Delhi to Jaipur and that he is the owner of a big business!!!

I am not sure if my guide was bluffing, throughout our 3 hours with the guide I kept asking and looking for hints to see if he was just making up the story. If indeed that story is true I must say I am flabbergasted! :mrgreen:

    Haha, Hobbes! It could be true.

    In college, I barely managed to climb into the last train compartment that is the luggage one. It had fisherwomen carrying their baskets. They were discussing about their flats they have rented out and which area to invest in next!

    A friend once told me the sages at Kumbh Mela ask for Rs. 500 from non-Indians for clicking their picture.

    But a lovely picture 😀
