I was walking in Panvel near Mumbai on Friday, when I came across this ageing worker sitting comfortably on the pavement. He was shy and not willing to talk much. But he did not mind my sitting next to him on the pavement and when a young relative of his joined, he was fine with it.

Originally from a nearby village in Karjat at the foothills of the Western Ghats, which heads up to Lonavala, he has struggled all his life as a labourer.
