The boy was delivering a lunch box

The boy was working in a fruit market among adults. In the flow of the working people, he stopped and started to look at me who held an SLR camera. I was attracted by him and he was attracted by a foreign stranger.

A tall lunch box called Dabba was in his hand. His job was to deliver the lunch box. Those who delivered lunch box were called Dabbawala. I'd bet my life on it. The contents could be curry. He kept stopping and wore a flamboyant smile. During I shot him, some men carrying bananas passed by him.
