It was one of those hot afternoon of Orissa and I was on my way to Phulbani. Our bus halted at an isolated place. I felt relived as because it was so hot and the bus was over packed, I really needed some fresh air.
I came out and looked around, the whole placed looked dry,empty & lifeless. There I saw this old women sitting alone to one side of the road and selling green chilies,dry chilies, garlic,ginger,lemon & mangoes. They looked fresh but no body brought anything from her. It seemed as if her business has not yet started but she was patience. I waited for some time hoping this bus might bring some relief to her wrinkled face but it did not, our bus gave the final horn and passengers climbed up to their respective seats before leaving, I gave a final look to see if there was anything of my use but couldn't find anything and I did not feel like questioning her self respect so I moved ahead leaving her alone with a respect for her and many questions in my mind.

  10. This is a most touching photo. The dear waits and waits for someone to purchase her wares. What amazing patience but, then, what is she to do? You are so respectful in your narratives and assessment. I enjoy your photographs and respect what you have to say.
