Kabul is his name, he is a rickshaw driver in Benares, India. He is probably the most photogenic and beautiful man I saw there. When you are constantly hounded by rickshaw drivers you tend to ignore them after awhile, but he was not like the others and didn't bother you. then I saw his eyes and how vivid they were, a very rare trait to have green eyes like this among such dark skin. He is unsure of his descent and also of his age, but there is no way he is purely Indian

Beautiful portrait. Reminds me of that famous National Geographic photo of the girl with the piercing eyes.

Wow, stunning photo. I love the skin tones and how the red wrap contrasts with the green background. Very nice story, too.

It is a handsome and rich photograph Joey. And he is indeed a striking gentleman.

"Purely Indian" is a bit of an oxymoron, I think. Like saying "Purely Chinese." There is a great diversity in features, eye, and hair colour when one becomes attuned to subtle differences (as a real photographer is). Your commentary is nice - the photo speaks for itself too.
