From Lonely Planet:
"Photographer and explorer Maria Sahai recently decided to book a last-minute trip to India. Along with her husband Karim, she flew into Jaipur, eager to experience all this vibrant city has to offer. “It was my first long-awaited trip to India”, Maria tells Lonely Planet News. “The country is known as a photographer’s paradise, with its vivid colors, history and the abundance of photogenic places and people. My journey was full of amazing food, friendly people and spectacular locations. It was a truly satisfying experience, both personally and photographically.”

To me, this image is an example of how powerful photography is as a tool for sharing information. Many people who saw this image commented on how thoughtful his gaze is. His clothing, posture, the light and the surroundings can easily lead to the impression that it is a very spiritual moment captured.
In reality, he was casually chatting on the phone using a bluetooth earpiece. I just managed to capture the moment when he stopped to listen to his opponent.
