Strokes of Karthik

Chennai Book Fair is an annual event which takes place around Pongal time in January 2006. Not only books are sold, you have food stall of Arusuvai Natarajan, Chilli Bajjis, Giant size Appalam, Pop Corn Ice Cream etc., This time there was a mobile blood bank. An airconditioned van with facilities to bleed about 4 people at a time. In a corner, I found Karthik, a pencil sketch artist, making pencil sketches for Rs 50/- a sketch. He was making a pencil sketch of a girl. I took some shots of Karthik creating a pencil sketch of this girl. There was a huge crowd surrounding Karthik to witness the strokes of Karthik.
