Sweeping the street

Madurai

She is living in this small dark alley, so she swept not only for her door but the whole alley to the main street.

There is a saying If each would sweep before his own door, we should have a clean city. Nothing is further from the truth then here in the city of Madurai, always full of dust, sand on the roads, a place to remind you that dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return :)). Don't change your lens here or your sensor will be full of ...

Indeed if you see Madurai from far or look over Madurai from a rooftop at sunset, you see a haze of dust in the air, less after some rain or on Sundays when traffic is down.

So sweaping makes even more dust in the air, a vicious circle.
