The man in the photo was, at the time, my oldest living relative, at over eighty-five years of age. I believe he was my great-grandfather's second-cousin, but I could be mistaken on how exactly we are related.
Regardless, the pure joy in this man's eyes when he saw my father is unbelievable. I cannot describe in words the happiness that glowed from this man's face. Of the many photos I took during my trip to India, this is my favorite.
He has since passed away, but I feel incredibly blessed to have met this man within my lifetime.
