Fortune Tellers at Hampi

 I have been off blogging for nearly 2 weeks as I  was away on personal work for around a week and thereafter took off on an amazing architectural tour to Hampi, Pattadakal & Badami for 5 days. Sorry for the uninformed absence. I do have a lot of catching up to do. I am presenting below a fascinating picture of two fortune tellers I met at Hampi.  And I did not offer my hand for my fortune to be told ! They readily posed for the picture for a royal fee of Rs.10/-.
I have captured plenty of incredible pictures  during the Hampi trip and shall be sharing some of these with you over the next few weeks/months.

  9. Totally worth the 10 rupees. I wonder what the charge was for a fortune, and if you would get both of their opinions, or just one.
