Street Life In India

India is one of the most spiritual countries in the world, and though peace can be found internally or at specific places, its streets are always lively and bustling and moving and colorful, even in rural areas. In fact, a lot of Indians spend most of their time in the street instead of at home, whether it is working, farming, selling, driving, playing (cricket), doing laundry by hand, herding buffalo or cows, transporting goods, or even just having a cup of chai out in the “porch”.

You can see for yourself with these wonderful series of photos:

All photos were taken by me in Ahmednagar, Maharashtra and the rural area near it between the years 2009 and 2013.

This post is in response to the weekly photo challenge: street life.

  1. I kept smiling when viewing your pics because it’s so India, and I truly enjoyed my travels over there back in 2010-2011. Love the kid on the motorcycle 🙂
