Impressions from India: Street Scenes

This latter street corner is a whole microcosmos of life. I was waiting at this street corner (Hope Farm) for 30 minutes each time I took the bus and every second of it it was an exciting place. The main functions are (from the left) a prayer room, a small corner shop (tea seems to be the best-selling item when I was there) and a bus stop. But apart from those obvious functions it was also a place of 'social life' - I had the impression that some people simply came there to read the newspaper and to 'be there', among people.
