Imraan, c/o Carrom Club offers us a glimpse of the culture of one of Mumbai’s many social clubs where young men and boys gather to smoke, gamble and play carrom, a strike and pocket table game popular throughout the region. Between gaming, smoking and joking around the boys share their thoughts about life.
