The crowds form from laws based in wild nature, law that exists outside the wall of their legislation. There is no confusion here. The people of India accept the caste system as fate.  It is a law that is outside of the domain which they can modify. Indian society seems founded on the laws of men and nature.  In the streets and earth of Indian society every existence manifests itself openly without being covered up. Wealth and poverty, beauty and ugliness, piety and vulgarity, acts noble and humble, the new and the old... all of humanity's opposites are in display in public as dazzling chaos.

 

There my own personal eyes faded and I became the eyes of the crowd. I held my camera and stood in the chaos, there in the center of the whirlpool of humanity... a new experience in which I could rebuild myself together with the world.
