Energy Saver

Cycles save energy - they don't use fossil fuels or any other fuel, except human energy.  Cycling is a good exercise too.  It builds up your energy. But these cycles belong to people who use them for travelling to their workplaces every day and back home.  And then once a week they come to a place of worship riding the same cycles.  Even if the religious service is in the dead of the night, after their whole day's tiresome work.  Were the cyclists building up their muscles/energy? Cycles are toys for some!

A Place to Sleep

Both these pictures were taken last night at about 11 o'clock.  If you take a ride at night through the capital of the world's largest democracy, a country whose multi-billionaires are rising in number with generous assistance from the government in the form of tax exemptions and so on, you will find hundreds of homeless people sleeping on the roadside.

The Burden of Beauty

This morning [17 April 2011] the Bhatti village in New Delhi woke up to an overcast firmament.  The clouds brought home a majestic guest, this peacock.  It sat on the wall below my quarters giving me food for thought.

The history of majesty lies in ruins beneath your feet. That's the fate!

Bird on the Tree

A bird on the tree is worth many in the cage. Worth to whom? The bird, of course. Or the potential bird-catcher and bird-seller?
