Rough Lives...

Someone from the streets of Shri Badrinath. The rope that you see on his shoulder is used to tie the goods that he carries on his back, from one place to the other. Needless to say, this is one of the toughest things to do on hills. Every rupee that he earns is a result of very very hard work!

God Bless !

Street Stylist

One of the makeshift Barber shops in Shri Badrinath. A haircut here would cost just about half a dollar!

One of the flags at Shri Badrinath Temple.

Why are a lot of flags associated with religion triagular?

Still !

p.s... this image is also a good example of "what not to do" while taking pictures !! the right top corner has something which was there on the lens and has messed up the picture !!! something to look out for, when you can take a second picture !!! i did not, and ended up with this as my final image !!!

Toad(aly) Wooden !

And yes, the colors are coming back slowly :) Thank you everyone for a very encouraging September with the B/Ws !!!

These toads are handcrafted somewhere in Thailand, and when a wooden stick is moved on the groves on the top, it makes a sound which is unbelievably similar to the croaking of a toad !!!
