I've lived in the United States many years now, but wanted to take some of my relatives back to our place of origin. After a long flight, we arrived safely!
India is a place of rich contrasts. Sights and people are varied. During our time there, we visited the crowded markets, traveled by unusual means. In my travels, I find the ordinary places and people the most honest representation of a place, so I begin with those; but, we also saw many famous places.
India offers visitors some unusual means of travel. This converted motor cycle taxi is still popular in places like India and Thailand.
Many rural places have these street side markets.
Traditional ways of celebrating are very different in India.
Overseas, it is always interesting to see references to "things Western". In the photo above, one is left wondering if the spelling of Facebook is accidental or intentional.
Many people are unaware of the religious diversity present in Modern India. The next two photos are of famous places. Both of these show a small part of the diversity that is India.
I hope you enjoyed this "mini-trip" of India.
