Old Places Have Soul by Dipsankar Saha

I was just roaming around the streets of Kumartuli, Kolkata, which is known to have old buildings and home of many people. At that moment i found this old man at his home doing something, the simplicity of that people, place and the surroundings attracted me very much to take the shot.
