old woman | katha stitch dress | from nowhere
Hi guys, I saw this old lady walking in my city (Lucknow) yesterday!! I don’t exactly know what to call her! But she had this unique dressing style, she wore a katha stitch cape/robe kinda thing, carried this huge axe on her back & smoked 'bidi' and it literally attracted me & I couldn’t resist clicking her! I went ahead asking her name, she stared at me for a while and didn't even mumble a word. I repeated, "aapka naam kya hai aunty?" and she kept on staring at me and finished smoking her 'bidi'. I don't know if she was acting stubborn or was surprised/shocked to have me asking her name, maybe no one else did that to her in the past? I thought the same, greeted "namaste" to her and walked off.
Isn't it strange, we have so many types of people living around us but we don't even have a clue about their culture or origin, basically it is a risk of abuse or neglect or in one word I should say 'vulnerable'! Have we become self-centred or too busy too learn new stuff?
PS : If you get the right word for the lady (in the picture), do let me know!
