Sad & funny.
The man you see in the first picture is a "Khan''. Now this is actually an honorific. But in Shimla, it is used as a nomenclature for Kashmiri men (usually Muslim) who ferry heavy stuff around. ‘'Stuff’' can be anything (as you can seee in the picture) from a dining table to a cupboard, washing machine or a double-bed. These men have been doing this work since Shimla came into existence some 200 years ago. I'm not proud of this aspect of our town…
The second picture shows a fortune-teller who'd evidently revealed something not-so-pleasant to his client. Their expressions were so telling!
