An older Indian gentleman in a hat posing in Kochi's historic district is featured in this street portrait from India.
Respect for the elderly is highly valued in Indian culture. Children, especially sons, are obligated to assist their aging parents beyond what is required by law. Elderly members of society are often tasked with additional responsibilities around the house following cultural norms. This individual was cleaning the yard when I approached him and asked permission to take his photograph.
