Nagpur, in and around

In Pune we took the night train to Nagpur. Here are some images of people and trains, look how this women is working between the rails, such a dangerous job...

After some days Kamla, Asha, Agnes and Subhash thought it was time I get me an Indian outfit and they took me in the evening first to the Bazar for buying cloths, then we walked many streets to find our dressmaker...

Nagpur is situated in the very center of India, for sure we couldn't miss to visit the Zero Miloe Stone. Afterwards we visited the Budist Temple honoring Dr Ambedkar. Dr Ambedkar was a Dalit (untouchables) political leader and one of the founding fathers of India's independency. He also wrote the Indian constitution.
Another day we went to the Dragon Palace Temple. I was even more touched to see those two women cutting the grass and in the village just beside to see those street workers in so wonderful colloured dresses... After the temple visit we had a wonderful diner at Asha's sister Mrudul Kashyap's place.

On Sunday we went to a celebration at the Methodist church. Afterwards Asha invited us for lunch, and while she was cooking I visited her brother-in-law's workplace. From specific woodsorts (I forgot which ones) he made biological shampoo (awala sikikai and nager motha), throat caring medicine a.o.... When we drove back home, around 2 or 3 in the afternoon, the sun still was shining warmmmmm (+40C) when I saw these women working on the road... Before I came to Nagpur I never could imagine what it realy means to live in a temperature of +40/+45C... I wasn't able to do anything... Then saw these ladies working on the heatst of the day. The same as I see Shalu and Nitin working outside in the garden at home... Poverty makes them to do so, but anyway I think this is incredible courageous of these people.
