"Nek Ram" , Fatehpur Sikhri.. [The nearest word if one translates "nek" is good].. 82 years old.. He was in the official bunch of guides till 1978. He went on a tirthajatra, came back and found that he lost his job. From there on, he sits on the same place and narrates the never heard stories.. He has lost the clarity of expression but as I could make out, his story telling is amazing... I felt that I am transported to that era.. I sat with him for quite some time. And he shared his understanding of life as well...He said "Just surrender yourself.. rest he would take care.." He continued.. "We feel we understand and control things.. but in reality its only the Almighty who controls.. Just be here and enjoy.."
I dedicate this photo to Hamni Juni who was the first to inspire me for portrait photography and said "your portraits are very strong".. thanks Hamni..
