As the tenth largest city in India with a population of more than 3 million residents, Jaipur does not lack any of the intense, bustling energy that infuses many of India’s densely populated urban areas.

I was struck by his calm, reserved demeanor as he sat and quietly observed the hectic daily grind of life in Jaipur.
