Small Town Magic

September 17, 2013 1 min read

Be prepared to be completely delighted by the unexpected in the small towns of India.

A few shots of fun walks in the bazaar that can provide endless entertainment IF one adopts an attitude of wonder and awe.

Otherwise it is easy to deprive oneself and view any of its cities and small towns as one big chaotic undecipherable mess.

Small towns are particularly endearing with the little quirks that are unique to each. There are so many lifestyle aspects that can be seen in small towns that big cities have completely lost.

“The Olden Days” are alive and well in small towns.

A glimpse:


Wires creating geometric art works in the sky


Boiled eggs for sale


Groundnuts for sale


Taking his pet goldfish out for a walk?


A traveling Milkman


Just around the corner – some police protection

Expect the unexpected!

And be charmed by the small towns of India.

The next few artciles highlight some of the scenes, some cute, others unsusual,  that have left an impression on me.
