Another stunning study from your amazing series ee......... your subject looks to well dressed and well travelled.

A pilgrim in this sense ?

Are they on a permanent pilgrimage depending upon the goodwill of others....or...is he similar to our Medieval Pilgrims, who made a one-of, or, occasional visit to an established shrine ?

Hi Cyril, the pilgrims in India are really timeless & difficult to categorize:
1. some are one timer visiting for blessings & self purification, mostly well to do;
2, some are seasonal & they travel throughout India for pilgrimage depending on the types of hindu temples whether they worship Lord Shiva, Lord Vishnu, Lord Brahma, the holy trinity or the myriads of lesser gods. Everyday, in India, there is a festival or a pilgrimage happening somewhere;
3. some pilgrims are homelsss & depend on the grace of other worshipers or survival on their own.....it is a very thin line defining perpetual pilgrims & homeless people.
Talking about this, I better get my camera gear & back packing things ready as i will be flying back to New Delhi (India) on 29 Oct. for a 36 days of "pilgrimaging" & traveling, covering the northern states of Punjab, Uttarakhand, Rajasthan, etc.
Best regards, Cyril. Grin]

Certainly deep in thought eh ?
