Aalu Baba lives in a stone house in the mountain. He is eating mainly potatoes (aalu) and lemons. Although we did not speaking the same languages, he was a kind and gentle Sadhu. His eyes were sparkling and he felt genuinely holy. I spent the afternoon with him and could used some external flashes to enlighten the scene.
Location: Pushkar, Radjastan, India
