The man with a mustache wore a blank face. Apparently he was an Indian immigrant. There were many immigrants from India or Bangladesh in this country because this country was the part of the former British Empire in India. His face was painted with white paint which was called Thanaka, a sort of sunblock. Yet it was almost removed.
