The Valentine Irony

My feed on all social media is either flooded with cricket or with Valentine themed gifts/cooking/date etc etc etc…. But what most interesting is how may of the online flower delivery company ads have flooded all the sites.

For a shoot recently my sister had gone to the flower district of Mumbai. When I saw some of the pictures she took it was difficult to miss the irony in some of these images..

Man cashing in on Valentine fever with his Valentine right beside him…

Business as usual for the everyday sellers.

But to me one of the most interesting image was of this lady who was buying flowers for the temple.

She did not pick roses as per usual because of the soaring prices. But I think she will go back to buying them tomorrow.
