Photographer's Note

Paan shops are a common sight in all Indian cities and villages... Here in Mumbai, formerly known as Bombay, a paan-walla(paan seller) is preparing the leaves, ready to be filled , then chewed by his customers.It makes your mouth red, and provokes an intense salivation, forcing users to spit a red juice all around the place.
It will go in my Mumbai street vendors and shops theme.

Le 'paan', appel a tort noix de btel, consiste en une feuille farcie de divers ingrdients, et se mache comme une chique. On le trouve partout dans les villes et villages de l'Inde... Il rend la bouche et les dents tout rouges, et provoque une intense salivation, obligeant les consommateurs a cracher partout un jus rouge fonc.
