Photographer's Note

For more than 32 years this woman has been smiling at me, and the girl laughing out loud. Now the woman is reaching old age and the girl is a middle-aged woman, but to me they will be sitting here, forever young, in a street of Ahmedabad city.

I took this photo in late September 1977. I had almost forgotten about it, until I brought it out from my wardrobe recently to scan it. I have no idea what they were selling, those black and white things. A fruit or vegetable, partly peeled to reveal the white meat? I am sure I asked about its name but only got it in Gujarati, which didn't make me any wiser. Maybe an Indian member of TE will know the answer.

This was scanned from a Kodachrome slide.
