Vrindavan – Across the river

11th February 2014 (Day 3) (Vrindavan #2)

.

This morning we crossed the river and went for a walk to a nearby village.

The second boat with the other half of our party.

Egret.

Storage hut, not a dwelling.

The hut has collapsed, they appear to be removing the contents.

Buffalo at the village.

Herbs at the edges of the fields.

Black-winged stilt.

In this last image, what is behind the boat is not a sculpture or a special roosting installation for birds, it is the pylons for a motorway bridge that was to go through the heart of Vrindavan, demolishing the integrity of a cultural heritage area.  This was only stopped following concerted local objections.

    What a glassy still morning for photos, and brilliant ones at that. Love all the different boats and the glimpse of a way of life away from the main cities of India.
