The road…

It unites so many lives.


People drive on it


Some just walk on it IMG_5613... Some lead their animals on it.. IMG_5646 IMG_5707 Sometimes buildings, especially temples, are built right on it.. IMG_5612 Eateries survive near it: IMG_5589 Several creatures thrive near it: IMG_5603 My friends discuss their photographs, standing on it: IMG_5623 There are havens at the end of the road: IMG_5724 On an urban road is the statue of a bird-lover: IMG_5789 The River.
