Waiting for his princess...

At the magnificent City Palace of Udaipur, I saw this guy staring intently out of the window as if he was waiting for someone or something to happen. I was instantly reminded of all the fairy tales of the Princesses staring out of the window and waiting for the handsome Prince to rescue them from the clutches of evil.

 

I don't know why there are not many stories of the Prince being rescued by the Princess and I don't see why that cannot happen. I think its unfair!

 

I'm assuming this man has his own set of issue and problems in life (who doesn't?) and is waiting for someone (his princess) to rescue him from all of these OR may be he is just a security guard doing a good job of keeping a keen eye on the happenings around :)
