Roadside ironing of clothes in Bangalore with coal ironboxes in 2016!

Like most people, I see my native country, with new eyes after moving out of it! Things which I took for granted and never gave a second glance are things I lovingly photograph now! One of the things I have started appreciating after I left India is the several types of workers plying their trades on the streets. Below is the gentleman who irons clothes on a street in Malleshwaram. He  kindly agreed to let me photograph him.
 He uses a large and heavy iron box which is heated with coal. You can see a sack of coal under his cart in the 3rd photo. People come to his cart, which is on a pavement under a shady tree and give their clothes and later collect the ironed clothes. (Or maybe he goes to their homes to collect washed laundry and then deliver ironed clothes.)
I really enjoyed my brief chat with him and like  the look of kindness and gentleness on his face.
