There are many adjectives to describe India, from incongruous and unusual to breathtaking and beautiful. I’ve come to realise that any adjectives do not do the delicious melting pot that is India justice, so I have decided to accept is as it is – India just is…
Snake charmer, New Delhi
Qutb Minar, New Delhi
Rickshaw ride in New Delhi
White brilliance, Taj Mahal
Rickshaw in Pune
The sun trying to rise and show itself through the smoke in an early winter’s morning in Mumbai
The Aga Khan Palace in Pune
Sugar cane juice stand and the some of the many motorbikes in the city
I had the idea that the Taj Mahal was just a single structure sitting alone in the middle of an Indian city. I should not have been surprised then, to see that it is a whole complex! It is large and vast, just like the country itself.
The photo below is not of a window but taken from the window of a moving bus. It reminds me of the short I took with a bunch of colleagues to a nature reserve outside Pune in India. We crossed the river, the dam wall on the right looming gigantically above us. It was quite dramatic. right after crossing the river the road started climbing, and I took this photo as we crested the hill.
