Conveyor belt for coal transport in disuse

Conveyor_belt

This steel structure used to house conveyor belt for coal transport from mines to rail head. But it promptly went in disuse. Why? The interests of truckers ensured that the energy efficient system fails. This photograph is from Chass, Bokaro.

Water risen in Ganges

Puja_at_ganges

I found that in two days Ganges has widened by about 120 meters on the right side of the flow. All fields of vegetable growers, which were abandoned about two weeks back are now submerged along with huts. The widening looks beautiful. In the photo attached a morning pilgrim is offering puja with water to the Sun.

The doctor and medicine in tent. Found on the side of road in all middle level cities of India. They have their own space in the Health market of India. 
Unregulated and disorganised, but looks it is thriving.

The Don

I am not sure if he is the Don of illicit liquor making at the Ganges or not. But he comes to the ghat with confidence. Sits alone in underwear and generally not bothered about the response of others. People around listen to him. I have not seen him instructing the liquor workers. But it appears that they are under his command. I may be mistaken. But I am impressed by his personality whom I prefer calling Jalladva, or the merciless! Look at his photo graphs.

Dust allergy to Rana Pratap?

Photo0652

At Ranapratap square the road is being dug for laying sewage line. This has caused traffic congestion and excessive dust. I am getting restless here in 5 minutes. The great Hero must be enduring it all through. Besides, a political party has chained him by its flags. Rana must be really suffering. :-(

Camel's saddle

Saddle

Camels are used for transportation of water melons, pumpkins and other vegetables grown in the Ganges sand. I had seen them moving but not seen their saddle closely. One day I found this saddle on the sand. It looks simple, yet beautiful. ----------

Wait

Wait

I found a lady and a child waiting on the bank of Ganges. A boat was parked nearby. The lady had kept her jhaua (semi spherical basket made of sticks of lentil plant) on the boat. Her chappals were on the sand near the shore. They were waiting for the boatman to arrive. It was cloudy and could rain any moment. And the rain started. They moved and took shelter under a boat kept upside down as it was no more needed for the cropping season. Their wait was at ease. No hurry. It was I who was in a hurry to return back home.

Camel at large

Camel_at_large

The camel was grazing in the now abandoned vegetable fields on the bank of Ganges. When Avdhesh, the owner tried to catch him for transportation duties, he started dodging and running here and there. Poor owner could not catch him even after long chase!

It was a sight for my enjoyment but definitely not for Avdhesh. ----------

The lady broom seller

Broom4

There was a family or probably a couple of families by the side of road. They were making and selling brooms made of palm leaves. I purchased 3 at Rs 25 with a mock bargaining. The lady who was selling told that they are from Banda and are here on the footpath for 14 months. The life for these people was visibly tough but not miserable.
