indian man smiling - betel nut teeth (india)

I took this photo at a cattle market I stumbled upon on the road in West Bengal (India).­

All the local farmers were there to buy and sell livestock (often young animals).­ Most of them were Muslim.­ This is a portrait of one of those farmers.­

The orange color of his teeth is from chewing Betel nut.­ Betel nut is consumed by many people in India, as a psycho-stimulating and euphoria-inducing drug.­
