While going to and from Nawabganj and around Lucknow, I took some photographs of the fascinating sights of a typical Indian city. You dont get to see all this in sunny old London, do you? where life is regimented and regulated till its bland boring and bleah. Mind you, I was taking the pics from inside the car so the windows were in the way.
People pass by this little memorial. It is for Abdul Hamid. A man who singlehandedly knocked out 7 Pakistani Patton Tanks during the 1965 Indo Pak War. Some of these tanks types are shown above. The man got India’s highest military honour, Param Veer Chakra. Salutations. And to think he shares a name with that other waste of space in Ottoman times. Bah.
the Mahomed Bagh Club where Sangeeta’s book reading took place.
Keep 30 fit distance (feet?).
mmmm, i so wanted to buy some stuff from this roadside vendor but after getting a glare from Sangeeta, desisted. Plus some galouti kebabs were waiting for me at home.
Gas canisters for home delivery. Here is the slideshow with more photographs. Indian cities are a photographer’s delight, you get such great images. Love it.
