    A lil sad story ( somewhere in a small village near Dharampur,HP ) :

    The poor guy helped someone with money in his village. He needed money to move into the city and work in hotel's kitchen. The borrower left the village and gave him the address of hotel.

      so this meant that when u took the picture, you captured it for reasons other than the sadness he had, right?

      so this explanation is nt really attachd to the pic u took, but the persons. ITs good to know that, but its not really worthy to be attached to this pic to add unnecessary drama in that pic!

      just with sme pinch of salt,

      @Ekta : I shared it what I felt at the time of posting. Whenever I see this picture it reminds me of his story. It may look drama to you.

      well, may be i didnt really put what i wanted to say in best words..

      .. let me rephrase.

      The picture in itself is a good composition, and it doesnt need this explanation. Specially when That explanation wasn't something that helped in 'making' this picture. it was an after thought as i read from you. So its okay if you're sharing a story and showing this photograph, independent on each other, otherwise, it does look like to me, that you're adding the drama to make picture look "sad" where infact, when you took the picture, that wasnt really ur vision, or was it?
