Working Man

Well this is a more novel way of trying to solicit money outside the Tiruvannamalai Bus Stand. I suppose it's a sort of parallel to Western Buskers. For the time I was there, he was actually doing quite well financially and people seemed to enjoy watching him bouncing around on his bamboo stilt! When I asked around, I was rather hoping to hear he proposed doing giripradakshina on his stilt - but no such luck, he planned to stay close to the bus stand all day - rich pickings there!
