Unknowingly, I photographed a pujari (a priest) during a private session with a mother and her son. I sat with my guide in the inner temple as the prayer was completed, and was then invited to be prayed over by the pujari. He allowed me to take his photo, an honour I felt the significance of in the time that followed.
