  1. Thank you, Joshi.
    You show me things I can’t imagine ever seeing in my life if not for your photos. I’ll be studying this one more. It’s remarkable.

  2. Lovely portrait joshi. The eyes of the sadhu really are fiery. Was he mad at you when u were taking his photograph? And i am curious!! Who is a naga sadhu!?

  3. i feel like the Naga Sadhu is knowing all about me…like he can see through me and i don’t find him menacing at all. Perhaps if i was there i would’ve started crying…
    looking at ur shots makes me wish…so many wishes. :) :) :)

  4. I looked at your other photos of Sadhus, very interesting . I tried to see him in another way than menacing and he looks like he is thinking about something or taking on the suffering of the world. Do you talk to these people before taking their photo?This is an interesting sect.

  5. That expression you’ve captured is gold. : ) Great photo, joshi.
    Also, why do you give such controversial titles? :p *runs*

  6. Amazing capture. Loving your blog – saw in the about section that you also enjoy trance music, coffee and travelling? The best things in life!

  7. Very nice portraits you have here. I don’t see that look as menacing but the typical serious look you sometimes get with elders in that part of the world.
