CHAMBAL TO SHIVPURI (MP) - RANDOM CLICKS FROM TRAIN WINDOWWhile travelling on train from Amritsar to Indore I had a mood for photography (on 19-4-15 for sometime). The following clicks are from Chambal the unique river of India which flows from west to east and falls in Yamuna near Dholpur. Flowing in opposite direction this river has high ravine hills all along its banks. These ravines are famous for house of the erstwhile decoits the dakus of Chambal.
Camera: CANON SX 30 IS (Very effective zoom)
Initially there are some clicks from Chambal area then there are lives and landscapes near Shivpuri i.e train route from Gwalior to Shivpuri.
(During my journey from Delhi to Indore I felt a great pain for the innocent people. At every station the passengers would run here and there for water and sadly return, "Oh the queque was long, the train moved and I had to run. The railways are really a heartless organisation which can't meet the basic requirement of water to the passengers in the scorching heat. I suggest my respected Sikh sangats and gurdwaras to run chhabeel at every possible station. That will be a great service to the people)
A. THE GREAT CHAMBAL
The only river in India that flows north and north east
Because Chambal flows in opposite direction its flow is often much below the ground level. It thus forms ravine hills which have been infamous for the house famous decoits the dakus. Fullan Devi has been the legendary heroin.
About 3-4 kms south of Chambal I find an old Mughal period structure may be a sort of inn. Dholpur, Morena, Bammore have been cities enroute Gwalior to Agra.
B. ENROUTE GWALIOR TO SHIVPURI
My camera captures a castle some 2-3 kms off the road. I wish i knew the name of village where it stands
Religion is always high on the indian mind
I mark development projects almost every where. The Govt seems working.
|Banna the boundary of farms here is different. It is made up of hard stones. This is something strange for a Punjabi farmer|
|Converting land into cultivable one is not an easy task here. Concrete and stones have to be shifted.|
|Shivpuri style of villages|
|A young Hindu hermit. Chatting with his connections: How can he remain indifferent to technology.|
|"This train passes twice a week, it is from the Sikh country," the women seem to say|
|Shivpuri kind of brick kilns|
|May be this is the first movement of bride from the village. She is going to pay obeisance to the village deity|

|DEVELOPMENT ABANDONED. MAY BE AFTER THE CHANGE OF GOVT.|
