Kolkata amazes with its ‘odd’ pairing of enthusiastic festivities and unhurried modus vivendi. This photograph taken near a bustling Durga Puja pandal has a hand-rickshaw puller relaxing upon his parked vehicle beside a decorated road. As he lazes, an excited milieu of people walks past him along the decorated alley.
Clicked at the International Trade Fair, Kolkata, 2015. This stall had a tempting collection of vintage-themed clocks. And for me – a photographer without a tripod, it had a pile of empty cartons providing the perfect stand to place the camera for a slow shutter click. And this is what I got.
