    how many times have i passed this kid and never gave him a second glance, until now. I mean this metaphorically. When i was a kid i sported one garment just like this. Brings me the humid, warm childhood dreams back. Born & raised-delhi-living in cold chicago.

    The sporty collar, the blue-red tones of the t-shirt paired with the practical brown slacks, and the bike, make this gent look ready for anything.

    I’m lucky living in multi-cultural Toronto where I can see this type of young man everyday.

    hmm… i don’t get why this picture made it here. would you have taken a picture of him if his clothes didn’t provide such a great contrast with his skin colour?

    did you see his hair?

    I was trying to part my hair for a while and I could never get it to look this good.

    When I enlarged the picture the first thing I thought was, “Cool bike.”

    It’s funny, but if I owned the bike myself, I’d think I needed a new one. Perspective does interesting things. It took an old beat-up bike and a fairly common t-shirt and turned it into art.

    Bet he doesn’t know he’s a work of art. Hope someone tells him.

    Sart – I love all your Delhi shots. This one is striking, despite the simplicity of it. His hair is amazing, as are his eyes and “pose”.

    Good job.
    Can’t wait to see you go to other places in the world.

    Sitting here drinking my coffee, looking at your photos…This kid’s face and all these comments have kind of saved my day.

    I do think that a lot of the strength of this post derives from this young chap’s expression (which is really intense), the fact that he has an extremely good lean figure, and especially his beautifully glossy black hair. All this puts the clothing in the shade somewhat but it’s a splendid picture – love the angle between his arm & the handlebars. I’d be interested to know how he felt about your taking his picture, doesn’t look so happy I feel. Did you feel you were able to communicate the purpose of your photographs at all Scott? I’d be very interested to know.

    to kiku…
    isn’t that the whole point?
    You think all those women and men in Paris and NY didn’t chose their clothes because of how it looked against their colouring?
    The colour of a garment is just as important as the cut…
    I’m sure this guy chose this top knowing it would look good against his skin.

    also, you can’t look exclusively at the clothing. It’s the whole vibe that guy is exuding, his expression, how he wears his hair, what he’s doing etc etc etc that makes him interesting

    Ummm … most people speak English in India (often as a first language – especially in Delhi).

    Wow…the intensity in the eyes is infectious. The color of his skin astounding….I love that he is riding a bicycle.

    Not the clothes so much as the skin. It’s not “ashy” which can be a problem for us brown skinned folks especially in extreme weather.

    He’s well moisturized…that’s the fashion, y’all!

    I find this shot much more inspirational then the others. The others have been a reflection of the the state of international fashion. But here, the hair, the bright colors and the bike are so genuine and incidental. I think that’s what makes them so cool.

    Ha, the people here are so positive.
    I think the shirt is ugly and someone commented about the eyes, hummm I think he looks sad.

    People lets be real

    I love the bike tho.

    ciao sart….

    Not being racist here, but all you non-asians should know that if you’re raving about the eyes, pretty much all indians have wonderful, intense eyes.. i live in singapore which is multi-racial and the malays and indian people have the most beautiful eyes. Naturally long and curly eyelashes etc.

    I’m a bit confused looking at his face because although the shot makes him look young, he has this shadow of a mustache on his upper lip…

    The colours of his shirt are very bright. Loving the bike, too.

    I want this shirt now. Probably something I wouldn’t usually wear, but in a different light. . .

    this young chap…most probably is totally unaware about fashion…about making the shirt match with pants etc etc…this shirt must have been a pick from the street costing him around $2…n the bicycle is an old rusted one, which his entire family must be sharing…making a style statement must be the last thing in his mind.
