Later, we were having tea at a roadside shop and I was showing the pictures on the camera display to our auto drivers Raju and Gopi (I managed to acquire two auto drivers but that is another story). After a while I could sense they were just being polite and had no real interest in watching the pictures. I asked then, “Aap log roz wahi jagah dekh kar bore ho gaye ho?” (You guys are bored stiff with watching the same spots almost daily?). How heartily they agreed and that was the end of my photo display session with them.
Jal Mahal at Sunset, Jaipur, India
It was a very pleasant Saturday evening (15/11/2008) when Sunil (my younger nephew, also referred to as Brat 2 in many of my posts, his elder brother is Brat 1) and I made a stop at the Jal Mahal in Jaipur. I was quite smitten with the atmosphere (minus the plastic littered at the shore and deliberately avoided while clicking the picture), there were flowers on the shrubs, reflection of the palace in the water. A lot of people walking around in the wide open space ,with the lake and the palace on one side and street food on the other. The weather was quite nice too, not too cold and definitely not hot. I am quite happy the way photographs have turned out on this day.
