INDIA 2005  
Walk the Streets Home

This is the main street in a small village of Bhanderej 
where we stayed for one night

 



Next morning we wandered the streets. 
Paper rubbish seemed to be burnt in the road

 


 

The custom is for women to do manual labour in the fields and villages

 


 


Note rod-operated brakes on the immaculate bike

 



No space for traffic

 



Sacred cows freely wander. Adjacent is a pile of ash......it seemed to be the practice 
to burn paper in the centre of the road 

 



Ironing demonstration our tour guide, Paveen. 
On his left is the village tailor. The iron is filled with glowing charcoal....
no worries about power cuts. 

 



Another fine beast

 



Street scene in Kuchaman...a medium size town

 



The shops were basically large rooms raised up 
on plinths fronting the street 

 



The cart looks a bit on the large size for this small donkey

 



Everywhere we were surrounded by children 
who always wanted pens and usually wanted 
to see themselves on a digital camera screen

 



These American style Jeeps were common as also were
Morris Oxford Ambassador cars in the larger cities

 



According to Paveen the cattle were fed regularly 
by the locals but, as here, many ate waste 
cardboard and fed at street waste dumps

Walking with impunity
Note the lorry coming the other way

 



Same cow
