The road leading from my cousin's house in Chitragi to the Kumta (paent) market. It's a beautiful 10 minute walk. Here, bicycles serve as family vehicles. Notice how calmly, mom and infant are enjoying the ride on the rack.
The open drains on the side of the roads, carry the heavy monsoon rain water run-off. Ahead, cows resting on side of the road.
And across is this spectacular rice field. Despite having seen this field hazaar times, I am ever in awe. Depending on the time of day, or year, its a different scene. These pics are from an evening in September 2004; the light has a golden tinge and shadows are getting long. Monsoon rains have just ended, and the crop is starting to mature.
In this God-fearing country, the parting greeting is: Dev Bare Karo literally, May God do you good
