Mia Md. Chhotani Road (Mahim)

Work Space Mumbai. Needful Things. Winter Collection.

I finally met the man who sells odd things on the footpath opposite the Parsi Colony gate.

His name is Balu, and this is also his home for a very long time. His mother-tongue is Marathi. He picks up stuff which he thinks are interesting from the kachrawallas and displays them. He manages to fill his stomach with it.

These are the images from the previous seasons.

Festival Collection. September

Spring Collection. March

Monsoon Collection - July

Amazing. I've met people like Balu and am fascinated by their resourcefulness. I've got a set of playing cards like the one Spring Collection.

The photos are fantastic, Gopal.
