the poet, the pilgrim or the pensioner?

By sawsengee  
Street capture of this old hindu on the way to perform his religious rituals at the River Ganges ghats of Varanasi.........I set down for a cup of chai (tea) with him & came to learn that he was a poet & also a pensioner on his religious pilgrimage. Smile

It's surprising what you can find out about the sadhus when you start speaking to them. I met one old sadhu in hardiwar who was a surgeon.
Lovely portrait as usual ee.
A lovely portrait, interesting narrative and I love the reflections in his glasses Sawsengee.

Great work Sawsengee. So difficult to control the light and the reflection in his glasses but you have achieved this so well.
