Some street scenes showing the daily activities of people in Bangalore, during my brief visit to India a few years ago.
Traffic, small retail shops and market stalls are in such close proximity.
Everywhere in the street corner is populated with lots of food vendors. It's fascinating to watch locals like these vendors going about their daily lives.
Many streets are entirely devoted to selling the same merchandise as they have done for several years.
I enjoy riding, but I would need to develop my observation and training skills before I would be ready to navigate these streets. Pedestrians, auto-rickshaws, bicycles and other vehicles come so close to being bumped, but amazingly, they are not. I did not come across any collisions.
Almost every young woman I noticed was dressed in salwar kameez, and some in very bright, vivid colors.
The sightseeing of Bangalore aren't that numerous but there are many spiritual places of worship for different religions and every street has something unique to offer.
This is the St Mary's Cathedral which is the first Syrian Orthodox Church in Bangalore.
It's quite common to see Indian men pushing a cart laden with bags of goods and stuff from one end to the other in the street. More often I see one pushing and one pulling helping one another to stabilize the cart.
From another perspective, reading books and newspapers at the corner of the street is a pastime for many.
That's My World
