One of things that I adore so much about India is the amazing things you see in such unlikely places.
On my last trip to Bangalore I saw this horse and cart transporting some wooden planks. “That sounds quite normal” I hear you say…but this cart was in Residency Road, one of Bangalore’s busiest streets. Bangalore is a city of 5.6 million people and in any other city in the world of this size a horse and cart in the main street would cause pure chaos. However in India no one even bats an eyelid. Auto-rickshaws, taxis, buses and cars just go around the cart and go about their business.
For me this is a real delight. It makes me so happy that a huge city can still embrace a slower pace in its very busy streets. I love that I can find it hard to cross the street because it is so busy but an old horse and cart can still amble up the busiest road in Bangalore
