Photographer's Note

One of the many faces you can see in Chennai living their life on the pavement, surviving on what people hand out to them. the rings on her toes and the yellow thread on her neck indicates that she is married and her husband is alive. Her blouse with the border made of golden threads shows that she was well to do a while back but who knows what hardships she had to endure. A lot of people come from the villages to earn a living in the city and get lost in the fast paced life where no one has any time for anyone else.
She was drinking tea that a local teashop guy would have given out of pity or that she would have bought with her meagre earnings to quench the thirst of a hot summer day. Just one more to the millions lost in the crowd of a city...
