  1. Hey, Sreejith. Nice capture. It’s amazing how common a mode of transport this still is in rural India – bullock carts, horse carts, and even camel carts πŸ™‚ I remember being amazed by the number of camel carts on the roads of Rajasthan when I visited Bharatpur and Shekhawati.

    • Sorry Vibha for this really really late response …

      I had to take a long break from blogging in between.

      Thank you so much for stopping by and commenting πŸ™‚

      India is really interesting for the coexistence of old and new.

      You can see all modern cars on Indian roads along with bullock carts and Camel carts πŸ™‚

      Hope you are doing great and have a beautiful day ahead πŸ™‚

      Here, we could see the old world ‘bullock cart’ been used as a mode of transport for a school kid on a free way…

      Over last two decades it’s economy has grown significantly and millions have come out of extreme poverty.

      But, still it’s home to the largest population of people below poverty line and the gap between rich and poor is widening.

      I am truly hopeful of a bright future for this country if it’s governed with true intentions…

      Thank you so much for stopping by and sharing your thoughts πŸ™‚

      Have a beautiful day πŸ™‚

      • I’ve heard about the gap. And I have experience working with a few young co-workers from India, they often express their concerns. Indians are bright, hard workers. I, too, hope the government and leaders will develop a system to improve the gap for your country.Thank you for sharing, and your photos always speak gently about your thoughts. πŸ™‚

  2. Beautifully done again, Sreejith. Young vs old. Nature, tree vs concrete, roads. That must be a normal day for them, working hard to make a living. I agree with Amy on the boy looking back. Younger generation can have a tendency to feel lost while the more experienced just push off. Both have pros and cons…but go hand in hand. Hope all is well my friend. Take care.

    • Hello Mabel, I traveled in a Time Machine and reached one year back he he πŸ™‚

      India is a land of extreme contrasts…

      It’s home to people who built a Billion dollar house and at the same time millions are homeless in it’s villages and cities.

      Also, time is changing fast and younger generation know the value of education and sends their kids to schools at any cost.

      Scenes like these are common in Indian roads, mostly an illiterate villager takes his kids to schools in bullock carts or camel carts with the hope that, he will be able to drive a modern car through the same road one day …

      Thank you so much for your observant comments and let me do a little bit more time travel πŸ™‚

        • Dear Dalo, Hope you are doing great πŸ™‚

          I am back from another unexpected and rather long hiatus from blogging and doing a bit of time travel to see what’s all I missed in this beautiful forum πŸ™‚

          2017 didn’t gave me even a day to breath, but I am having a great start to 2018.

          I have truly taken inspiration from your words and worked hard even in the middle of many a personal losses.

          That helped me overcome many a hurdles and slowly but surely establishing a very satisfactory career in Sustainable Tourism πŸ™‚

          I really wish, I will get an opportunity to spend some time with you and learn from you πŸ™‚

          Thanks again for your appreciative comments and have a beautiful day ahead πŸ™‚

    • Hello Yvette,

      Let me wish you and family a very happy and peaceful new year πŸ™‚

      When I saw my notification icon blinking, I was curious and it is such a great feel to see your message.

      It has been quite a long time since I spent some quality time here and interacted with my friends.

      I am passing through a very intense phase of my life and even though I wished to be active here and interact with all, I couldn’t.

      The year just passed was the most eventful one for me and family, and the one we all would like to forget, for the number of close relatives we lost during last 365 days.

      Career wise, it was quite a challenging year and after 3-4 years of struggle, I finally could breath easy.

      I badly need to feel the warmth of friendship, mutual support and encouragement from all the wonderful people here and I really really wish, your message could trigger my come back.

      Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart πŸ™‚

      Sreejith.

      • well my pleasure to trigger something – and just said a prayer for you my sweet friend.
        I am sorry about the many losses this year – and about the years of various ups and downs –
        glad some easy breathing has come recently – and hope that lasts long enough for you to fortify.
        funny how sometimes just when we catch our breath and then get our footing – the new trials come –
        and so at times we just do all that we can to stay stable.
        and I know what you mean about the support system via blogging.
        I paused for a while – and likely will again
        and for your comeback – i think it will happen when it is time.
        or at least I hope.
        and even though it breathes new life into us and has that support system and even times of elated joy (like the times when certain photos make me write – or just getting to know friends through their post -eh?)
        well it (blogging) is also a pull and demands energy and time – and so I guess the pros and cons must always be considered.

        but sometimes it is like getting some batteries charged –
        and I am delighted that my recent comment brought a smile your way.
        and here is looking to 2018….
        and we will
        (get that – we WILL)
        stay connected cos that is just what blog friends do ….
        xxoo
