On the road near Vrindavan

12th February 2014 (Day 4) (Vrindavan #5)

.

Family with house and dog.

Most of the images in this post were from the journey back from Govardhan (and Kusum Sarovar temple) to Vrindavan.  The first two are from the journey to Govardhan.  Many were taken from the bus, in motion.

This is at Govardhan, having just alighted from the bus.

This is still at Govardhan but we are leaving on the bus.  This appears to be a makeshift shrine.  Three seekers or holy men and their puppy.

The shadows don’t really help here or in the previous image but when you’re travelling you can’t be everywhere in good light.

The wheels are a kind of mechanical threshing machine that you can see more clearly if you click on the image.  There is a handle on the large wheel to turn it around.  I suspect the huts store the green materials used to feed the machines and the output in turn is for animal feed, such as for the buffalo tied up in the foreground.

Low-tech traffic signals for trains, it would seem.  This is taken from the bus on an unregulated crossing and I presume that all trains are expected to stop to ensure no accidents.

A village scene flashing by as we drive past.  All the huts would be for storage.

After a while we stopped for lunch under a large tree.  This image and the next five were taken of people passing by or of the farming area around where we stopped.

I can’t show you the photograph taken on the phone.

For the last two, we are on our way on the bus again.  I understand these cattle are just lounging around in the sun, rather than being outside their own house in a village where cattle have property rights.

Current technology transport and transport from time immemorial.

    A great and interesting series (as usual). I must write that my favourite is the yellow building with the sleeping dog positioned just right. good shot!

    Thanks John. I agree. I remember it catching my eye as it flashes past but I couldn’t possibly have seen all the little details that make it more intriguing.
