It has all but disappeared from my mind

But nothing in India is identifiable, the mere asking of a question 
causes it to disappear or to merge in something else.
E. M. Forster
A camel herder, near our house.

A trip into town - Old Delhi.

How casually you say that, oh yes, that's the camel herder we'd pass on the way to school.

(Great book.)

I have never been to India but it is so interesting to see the old cars, with the cattle in the picture along with little shacks and large buildings.

What a collection of photos. A real treat every time.
You could so write a book, since you've got a great topic & CAN WRITE.

That is truly an amazing place. I love seeing pictures like these. They really spark the imagination.

Karin, you are pretty much right - we would walk past bullocks, dead 'untouchables' and camels on our 4 block walk to school. Our street paralleled a 'nala' - a huge ditch. Everything lived - and died - down there.
It haunted the hell out of me. Still does.
