Value Adders 2

At a tea shop on Kutcheri road

An immigrant minding the store on Kutchery Road Mylapore.

Migrants, Casual labourers, self-employed, small time service providers etc. are all value adders in our economic chain. I call them DEVAs (Deep End Value Adders). They are visible, yet invisible because we ignore them or take them for granted.

From my archives I am posting a few of these DEVAs (includes both genders) in a series.
