India from within
To take a cup of tea, sit on the first sidewalk you find, and then sip it slowly. To wait, watch, pass the time.
They will come sooner or later and talk to you because, like them, you live the street. You feel it and you will get to know the intricacies of this street theater, the big and small stories, the sense of movement, the sounds, songs and silences, the threat and encounters, the conflicts and wandering and, of course, the misery. Very often they will come forward, make your acquaintance. They will adopt you. Then you will follow them because they will protect you and learn in their own way, to like you. They will also like the photos that you have selected from their tough but vibrant existence, from their passage through this difficult but warm universe. By complete immersion, you'll feel you have done your homework and brought back your modest account. So I have seen India from within, not by visiting the inner cities or the rural areas but by being part of it.
