Quiet morning

On the way back to Delhi after few weeks of travelling around Rajasthan, we stopped for a night at a very small town. There was a big festival with lots of noise and excitement that evening, but in the morning, it was very quiet and peaceful. The only person I saw out on the street was this man who was just sitting in contemplation with a peacock, of all things, right behind him. I would have loved to know what his story was.
