Shantiniketan: Some Photographs

This is how they store hay in the villages of India...
Mud huts...but with modern attempt to attract more tourists to this beautiful land...
A bullock cart, shot from inside the car...
The famed red soil of the region....
A steam engine, pity the photograph of the train a little far away with the steam puffing out did not come out well...
This is dedicated to my husband, if he had not asked, I would not have bothered to find a bullock cart or as we call it gorur gari in Bengali....

The above photographs are from our short trip to Shantiniketan. Sorry for the random uploading of photographs, blogger follows its own sweet rules while uploading photographs it seems. After much struggle I have given up. There are some more photographs which are in my Facebook page, if curious please click here.
