A mix of religions


From the moment he insisted on visiting his home I was a bit on alert but it seemed after all not needed .....
He was proud about his interest for all religions like a pro-philosopher, showing his practice room, all the visiting cards of so many foreigners, inviting me to write in his guestbook, drinking a tea together and his youngest son as a God on his lab, an impressive encounter.

He is Hindu alright with the obvious big white horizontal lines on his forehead showing explicit his devotion honnoring of Siva, the destroyer or transcendent.

Handheld, undid the slight artificial light color cast of indoor shooting in favor of the natural color clarity.
