text: Several men stopped me in the village and reminded me of incidents in the past. - One was the son of the blacksmith and brass founder whom I photographed. He also works as blacksmith and brass founder and thus earns the money for the opium he smokes. He says himself that he needs Rs 5/- worth of opium per day.
