Old & sometimes forgotten people.........

By sawsengee  
Thousands abound lining the river ghats of Haridwar......old, homeless, transient & very often forgotten people shunned by society to fend for themselves. Captured here is an old man with ragged features all wrapped up in a grey blanket & sitting nonchalantly alone among the prayer ghats. His looks & stares are natural (without coaxing) which showed his natural disposition, his lack of focus(in life?) & his uneasiness being photographed by a foreigner (probably for the first time in his life).
p.s. better viewed large by clicking on the image.

Perhaps he was uneasy about being photographed but you may well have brought a special moment into his life that he will look back on with fondness. Again an excellent portrait Sawsengee.

a striking character and his focus, it seems, is no longer on the earthly matters but on afterlife

Great capture Sawsengee. The whole story of that mans life seems to be writ in those facial features.
