Harivansh, 31 – welder.
“I love history and I love travel. I grew up in Uttar Pradesh, but then travelled with a group of friends. We came to Jaipur a few years ago to explore its history. The fort and the palace are my favourite places here.” We asked him where his favourite place is in the world, but he couldn’t choose. “All over. I don’t like to feel tied down.”
It took some persuasion to draw Harivansh away from his work. We waited nearby. Only when he felt satisfied, did he put down his tools and remove his gloves. He came over with just the smallest shrug of his shoulders.
