I was walking through the Petter area in Colombo when I met a young man in a T-shirt. He had just lit a cigarette with a match. He seemed not to be interested in being photographed with doing nothing. He struck a fighting pose for me, just like a boxer does when I held my SLR camera.
Perhaps surprisingly to know that many people strike a pose with great enthusiasm when the camera is pointed at them. This man was one of such people. He was very service-oriented.
As a side note, the price of cigarettes in this country was very high compared to the cost of living.
