Faded Glory

This guy is caught between two worlds. He really wanted to smile for me, but he didn't. He was perhaps reminded that he stood for the ultra brave Rajput kings and warriors during the glory days of India. Days that were of opulence, the colored glass in the window would have matched the jewels on the walls and the bodies of the people. The colors of his turban may be faded, but his lively eyes and the peeking sunglasses in his pocket hint that this proud soldier is here and now.
