India - Tamil Nadu - Madurai

An ex railway workman, retired .
Every evening he comes to the grocery shop sitting on a step, enjoying the cool evening. Never saw him talking to someone, why not, I had a chat with him, a fine and very tall man. The railway company takes good care for their personnel, they provide free healthcare, free train-traveling and a pension. Most of the Indians have no pension at all.

The light of the shop fell on his face, just enough to give it a try , up to the limits.
