Man playing flute at Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur, India

In Jodhpur, India, a man sits on a concrete wall at Mehrangarh Fort, playing a flute. The man wears the traditional dress of the Indian state of Rajasthan -- a turban wrapped around his head and a long white upper garment called an angrakha. A yellow and red sash around his waist matches the colors of his turban. His flute is made from wood or bamboo and is painted with black and red stripes.
