The Rajasthani Street Vendor

Winner of the 2010 contest category: “People”

Description: I met this gentleman in Mount Abu, when he was busy selling peanuts near the Garden. He said he would allow me to click his photograph, only if I brought some peanuts from him. I indeed did. A win-win situation for both of us.
