Omkar, the peacock feather seller from Agra

Chennai has its fair share of migrant labourers from Bengal, Odisha, Bihar and other parts of the country. Some of the migrants are also self-employed. During our photo walk in the revamped Pondy Bazaar, we found Omkar from Agra selling peacock feathers. There were also others selling different articles like drums etc. Perhaps, this was an interim activity till they find a regular job or some other vocation.

Here is a closeup of his ware.
