young khasi man (india)

Khasi man from a vilage near Mawlynnong in the East Khasi Hills, in Meghalaya (India)

The orange color of his teeth is from chewing Betel nut.­ Areca palms trees (Betel trees) grow everywhere around here so Betel nut is consumed by all the locals (men and women), as a psycho-stimulating and euphoria-inducing drug.­
