The laborer was smoking

When people had time on their hands, it was a good way to kill time to smoke cigarettes. It was prohibited to smoke in the public space in India. Yet the local people seemed not to care about that. Perhaps they didn't know the law.

The laborer I met in the streets was also smoking a cigarette. He might be bashful and refused eye contact when I held my SLR camera. And he was dragging hard on the short cigarette with a veiny hand.
