Nakka

Man in Turban Smoking Chillum, Katha Masral Pakistan I pulled over my motorcycle when I saw this man on the side of the road. He'd harvested a bundle of kindling and was enjoying a smoke, I'm guessing before his trek home. I gestured to see if he'd share his chillum. We smoked for a few minutes; he was happy to share and happy to have his photo taken.
