A potrait of a Coolie ( worker whose primary job is to carry heavy lads).

Weight of his world. The man is cartrring a heavy lad of quilt on his head,the weight of the quilts and the daily struggle of his life is clearly shown in his eyes .In a developing country like India,almost 13 % of population still lies below poverty line ,where daily income is less than 100 INR ( 1$ ). The class of coolie belongs from the class where the daily struggle to meet simple needs of food is a struggle.
