@Regrann from @thatkanpuriaguy - A Morning in Mathura | Mathura June'2016

I took this during one of my work trips to a drought affected village in Madhya Pradesh last year

Last minute arrangements had left me stranded overnight at the Mathura railway station and I made way to the nearby Vishram Ghat in the early morning hours. After a boat ride in Yamuna which looked relatively cleaner than in Delhi where it has turned into a drain, I sauntered about this rather religious town.

This shot triggered an epiphany of sorts I wasn't ready for as I traversed the narrow cobbled pathways plastered with cow dung, amongst the priests clad in surf-excel white dhotis in the shadow of erstwhile magnificent temples and ashrams now reduced to ruins as it has become less and less feasible to restore them to their former glory.

Pola Celebration!
It’s a humbling experience how country people don’t forget to thank the animal for the works it is made to do on the farms.
Β #countryfest #celebration #countrylife #RuralIndia

Today our farmers are celebrating Bail Pola. The festival involves farmers worshipping bullocks on account of the huge role they play in the livelihood of farmers. The bulls are coated with oil & turmeric and then given a clean bath. They are then decorated with ornaments, garlands, shawls followed by a procession in the evening. Bulls are also treated with delicious food like Puran Poli.
Farmers thank or show their gratefulness towards everything that helps them earn a livelihood. #indianculture #farmers #ruralindia #maharashtra #indianfestival

Bought one of these handmade craft of bullok cart in Bilaspur, chattisghar. locals said that today is festival where farmers respect bullocks. The traditional festivals are around farming tools. Bullock carts have been part of my life as i also belong to a farmers family. I had many memories of our bullock cart and i am happy to buy one. Now i am regretting that i should have bought an other one for my other life in Berlin too.

Visited Goonj as part of the fellowship for setting up and getting books for 70 libraries of government schools in Rajasthan.

Before the meeting, got an opportunity to know a little about how goonj works. And this is when I encountered this beautiful room full of cotton sanitary pads.
While 90 percent of Indian women used unsanitary products like rags, ashes, newspapers and sand during their menstrual cycle, Goonj came up with their campaign called NJPC.
Under 'Not just a piece of cloth' (NJPC), there is an intervention which not only starts with providing a physical product but stresses more on changing practices, behavioural patterns, education and replication in the long term. MY Pad, Goonj's clean cloth pad is developed out of old cloth collected from urban masses. It is made with highly indigenous processes while also educating the user to make it on their own.
This was one out of the many initiatives I absolutely loved about Goonj.
They're so resourceful that they take absolutely anything and everything and turn that into something useful for the underprivileged. So next time you're about to discard something, take a pause, keep it aside and donate it to such NGOs.

Halfway between Ahmedabad and the village of Najupura. The road less traveled isn't so bad when surrounded by crazy friends. #roadtrip #floodtrip #bestoftimes #ruralgujarat #ruralindia #smiles #lotsoflove #compassion #movedbylove @DikenPatel @manavsadhna #najupura

Usha, flashes a grin stretching from ear to ear after her wheelchair got an upgrade. #Volunteer Sangam adjusted the armrest height which allows Usha to reach the wheels a lot easier, creating smoother mobility for her.
#UmangWWTI is blessed by its contributors each year, as the contributions they make to better the lives of our #DifferentlyAbled residents is invaluable and never forgotten.
