I was walking the busy town market on the day before Tulsi Vivah when I ran into Hussain, the vegetable seller. I had seen him before in his shop on market street but this time it was three times the surprise: First, I met him where I first got to know him, in 2007 when he sold garlic, lemons and green chilli peppers from a bed he used as his stall. Second, I didn't expect to see him there and then and third, I had a photo collage I have edited and printed of photos I've taken of him in both 2007 and 2012. Luckily I had it in my bag the same day. Once I handed it to him his face said it all.


Hardly an effort, putting a few photos together in Picasa and printing the photo for 5 rupees (10 cents USA), like many times before it shrinks in a second gaps of language, nation, religion, age and distance... underneath it all we all have the same human operating system and it's amazing to feel it.
