Once upon a time in Rishikesh.......

By sawsengee  
Street capture of a hindu sadhu at Ram Jhula in Rishikesh....all clad in a dark blue tunic with matching turban & a piece of red head band to contrast the dull blue. His face was smeared with ashes from the fire of burnt offerings & had a distinctive colourful marking on his forehead. H struck an elegant pose for my camera but I failed to ask him what sect of hinduism he was from (my lack of communicative ability in the local language!)
