Living a Smokey Life...
The picture was taken at Varanasi (India), a place of religious importance for Hindus. The man in the picture is one of the many beggars who make their living on alms given by people. many a times, a handful of them land up becoming addicts.
The picture is the presentation of his attitude of indifference towards the world and shows how lost he is in his own world.
