On my next to last day in Kolkata this past week I went down to the flower market at 6:30am to really experience the commotion of the flower sellers and all the various activity. It was a beautiful thing. While I was there I saw this woman at a small stall selling bags so that you could carry any flowers you bought. I had bought a few so I went up to buy a bag. She didn't speak English but was trying to talk to me. She also did not seem to be speaking Bengali and my friend with me had no idea what language it was. I indicated that I wanted to take her picture and she readily agreed. However, right after I took it she asked for money. But I had nothing left except for a 1 Rp coin. I offered it to her and she became angry and seemed insulted that I would offer her so little. In spite of all that, I am quite happy with how the photo turned out. I think she has a really remarkable face.|
Now on a down note. The next day at the end of my trip while traveling back through Delhi my camera bag was stolen at the airport along with my camera. It was really heart breaking and I am not sure when I will be able to afford another. In the meantime, I will keep posting photos from the trip. They should last me for a while.
