A worker having fun of smoking. I found him while taking nature shots near a field. The sunrise light which was from sidelight caught my interest & he was agreed to pose for me.

He is using A beedi is a thin, South Asian cigarette filled with tobacco flake and wrapped in a tendu leaf, tied with a string at one end.A traditional method of tobacco use throughout South Asia and parts of the Middle East, today beedies are popular and inexpensive in India. There, beedi consumption outpaces that of conventional cigarettes, although these tobacco-filled leaves deliver more nicotine, carbon monoxide and tar and carry a greater risk of oral cancers. Beedies accounted for 48% of Indian tobacco consumption in 2008.
