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.
