A Drive from Noida to Gurgaon
It has been a long time since I visited any new place and living in an urban concrete jungle gets on my soul after a while. This weekend we visited my brother-in-law and sister’s place. We had a great time with them and their one year old terror, my lovely niece. For a rare change Sesha was driving and my elder nephew was with him in the front seat where they were debating the relative merits of Hindi and Tamil pronunciations! Left to my own devices I as usual started taking photographs, the only change being I was doing it from a moving car.
I was clicking pictures at random, trying to capture whatever caught my fancy at the moment. It was a Sunday and the roads were relatively empty. After capturing many blurred images I suddenly started noticing a pattern.
There were so many people on the sidewalks! I noticed it very clearly maybe because I was looking for things to record on my camera. Otherwise we have taken the same road so many times and they at the best remain a blurr for me.
I wonder how much they make in day, what are their dreams?
The pavement is a home for so many even now!
They seem to be so much at ease even on the dusty roadside. I hope these lovely flowers add some color to their lives too!
Almost every 50 meter or even less, I encountered some kind of an attempt to earn a livelyhood! And all this in our capital city of New Delhi or fast developing region known as the NCR.
