People of rural India – Rickshaw puller

He is a rikshaw pullar at Vrindavan.

They provide easy travel medium which is very effective in the croweded streets of Vrindavan-Mathura. In inner market area cars normally struck in traffic but rikshaws still manage to sneek through.

Two Sadhus, @ Mathura

When I was walking along Goverdhan, there I saw both of them sitting along there.

People in India do respect the Sadhus/Saints, but now days, many are not really Sadhu by nature and they wear the mask of sadhu to make fool of people and have an eye on their money, particularly in Urban areas.

Sadhus normally lives in their own, they dont bother others and lives peaceful life.  Real sadhus have vast knowledge (Gyaan). And on time to time provide solutions to general public whenever approached.

Nice ride – Spotted at Saharanpur, UP

Did u notice something strange here.

Pinjore Garden, Kalka

This fascinating Mughal Garden is one of the most popular picnic spots. Unlike other Mughal gardens, the seven terraces at Pinjore, instead of ascending, descend into the distance and achieve an almost magical effect.
