Nothing colorless about this image! It is bright and vibrant-

I do agree with you that the picture is colorful – vibrant and loud.
The man wore colorful dress as well .
But he is a poor tea seller , struggling for survival , struggling to keep poverty at bay ,
struggling to earn a meal or two for his family daily…
There are millions who are struggling to live and living to struggle.
He is one of them.
His dress may be colorful , but his life is not.
That is what I meant . Sorry if it creates a little confusion
Thank you very much .

Life is a process full of stages. At certain stages, priority is to survive.
I always hope that someday life would be both beautiful and colourful for everyone.
Everybody deserves a chance to leave footprints in the sands of time.

I wish you were right , always.
But we see a lot of people , living and dying without making any mark anywhere.
- living a Life of poverty , debt , disability and diseases. It is a reality.
Thank you for sharing your noble thoughts.
Thanks a lot for appreciation.

Love the image! The footprints will surely disappear for all of us but we can still live with respect and pride

Every life has a purpose and each purpose has a dignity that no one can take away. Beautiful picture and photographic theme.

I can’t agree with you more. But sad truth is several thousands of human lives end up without ever realising their purpose or experiencing the dignity .Fate ? Don’t know.
Thank you for the appreciation .
Thanks a lot for sharing your thoughts.

Colorless People …because you will never find their footprints in the ‘sands of time ‘ … OK, but now he is a little bit famous because of your photo. I don’t think he is ‘colorless people’ but I understand what you mean. For me he looks like a nice man, working perhaps to support his family and receives a low wage… I hope he is happy.
March 28, 2013 at 7:01 pm
Thank you very much .Sorry for the delay in response .
I did not mean exactly what ‘ colorless ‘ literally means. Glad that you could understand.. He was polite and skilled – he made tasty snacks – but life is fair always , you know. There are millions like him in India , like most of the countries in the region. They work just to survive, not to prosper . In spite of his hardship , he was pleasant !

Brilliant shot. “struggling to live and living to struggle”

As so often, there’s much meaning in the photo you show us, Utham. Even though it’s a sad thing you’ve captured here, I appreciate the photo and the story all the same.
