A Tea , a Bidi and Cricket

Madurai

After seeing the ladies (see previous), I landed in this tea stall and accomodated myself in the cosy coconut-leafs sun-shelter with a, for me, very recognazable smokey haze. Getting a tea, I spotted this tiny man enjoying a bidi and watching a cricked game on television.

I went straight asking if the place next to him was free to sit down and after some chat, I felt accepted as another possible regular client.
So he went on watching the game and was not disturbed at all when I pointed my bazooka so close on to his face, far too much concentrated on the game, I shot him :)).
(see the reflection of the television in his eye)

At noon most people take time off to avoid the heat of the sun and such tea stalls are always marvellous places to meet people to become a bit more local. Every time I take a shoot there it is like making one more friend for the wondering reaction, what's so special about me ?

You can tell ....
