A lady skilfully making brooms from the spines of palm fronds.
A young boy trying to make a "puLLi kOlam" under his sister's tutelage (an unusual sight!). Yellow carpets of Copper Pod flowers, and the occasional purple of the Jacaranda.
The ground still damp from the previous night's short shower of rain.
No school buses.
Steam issuing from coffee urns in darshinis, with customers already sipping
The early buses, BMTC and company ones, thundering past.
Peeping past the Metro mess as I cross the road, hoping not to be hit.
Uneven footpaths, potholes to be avoided.
Two boys having great fun splashing a bucket of water on to a car, washing themselves as much as the vehicle.
Young men sorting out a variety of newspapers, before delivering them.
Pourakramikas trundling their trash bins.
Such vibrant life around me...there cannot be a single moment of boredom in a city walk!
