One of the first thing we noticed when we landed in Chennai was that people were very friendly and very often wanted to have their photo taken with us; or as in the case of these 2 guys, they simply wanted me to take their picture.
They were directing traffic on the Chennai Marina on a Sunday night and stopped what they were doing to have their picture taken. It didn't bother them and they were more than happy to let me move them to a more suitable location for the shot. Of course chaos reigned in their absence and they were very quickly summonsed back to duty.
