We ran across this colorful fellow while visiting the temple complex of Jehangir Mahal in the city of Orchha, India. Where ever there are tourist destinations in India you will be swarmed by beggars, people selling trinkets (made in China) and some posing for portraits. This fellow was one of the more colorfully adorned “Brahmin” we saw. I put the word in parenthesis because I have no idea if was was of the Brahmin cast or not? India is an interesting place where a good deal of what you see is in fact not what it is. Most of the Brahmin (a class/caste in Hinduism, working as priests, teachers and followers/protectors of sacred texts across generations) are often set out among themselves practicing yoga, meditating or teaching. I saw many men dressed up and asking for a few coins after we took their shots. So whether or not this guy was legit or not, he looked great and was worth a shot and a few bucks.
