Pushkar Scenes

 

Views and street scenes along the quiet lanes of Pushkar in Rajasthan taken last October while on a months tour of North India.

Have you ever considered how towns like this might have evolved if town planners had had a hand in their development? Now they are probably insanitary. They are no doubt dangerous….notice the dangling electricity cable in the last view, and the building standards are probably poor, especially considering that North India does suffer from earthquakes, but they are picturesque in the extreme.

Twenty-first Century living is generally safe and comfortable but that has come at a cost to neighbourhood living and the character of towns…..and there’s little appeal, or fun, in modern architecture and town planning. Shame I say!

  1. You are so right about the character that is missing in today’s planned developments.
    The colors in these images are so rich against all that old character.
