|Men who teach peace, Shiva saddhus, holy men, were arguing about the choice location the older man has established on the top of the steps leading down to Kali's temple. Soon after this, the older man packed up and left to sit somewhere else, and hope for donations. They live entirely on the funds given to them by people (pilgrims at the temple)asking for blessings and good luck.|

This is great Gloria. The one on the left really seems to be telling the saddhu on the right off. The guy on the right seems to be stomping his foot like a scolded child. What a great moment! Looks a little oversharpened and too bad the background trees are so in focus, but your capture of the moment is so great.
A very very interesting situation, Gloria, excellent timing. They look very angry. Good shot.
very nice scene, two great characters in one frame... i wish those guys were a bit sharper, the background was less sharp and you inculed feet of those individuals. anyway, nice picture
Very nice image, yet again Gloria...too bad the feet are cut , but I like it all the same. Soon it will be my tur to see Saddhus in Gangotri...
haha, they are quite an extraordinairy bunch of people aren't they? I Love this scene!! Just human after all! ;-)
