Chest Hair And Wristbands

Man striking pose

The man struck a pose

Shot in the city of Malda, India.

A man with chest hair who was wearing a lungi was striking a pose in the storefront. Looking closer, he wore two plastic wristbands on his left hand. I thought this kind of wristband was uncommon for men here.

By way of contrast, women like to wear bracelets. It is said that the hitting sound of the accessories expels evil spirits in India. Therefore, there were many accessories shop in the city. And they were crowded with local women.
