{Part II of Husband Pieter's Trip to India - Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh}

From Delhi, husband Pieter went to Lucknow in the Uttar Pradesh State.
What beautiful eyes!
You can see the Uttar Pradesh state with its capitol, right under Nepal...
Indo - Mongoloid origin can be found in this area.
The area is rather flat at only 123 m or 404 ft above sea level.
Pieter captured this photo from a crowded train!
Near a tannery he captured these WHITE-RUMPED VULTURE Gyps bengalensis...←click it.
Women doing hard labor and still manage to wear a gracious smile!
Life is NOT easy in that part of the world...
Young men looking for a job...
Coffee or Tea shop waiting for customers.
Fresh fruits and vegetables for sale.
Vintage sewing machines...
Some people are bare footed...
Woman gathering deadwood so she can cook her family meal...
Such a trip does make one very appreciative!

      That is so true and we both have often wished that all youth could at least go there and see with their own eyes; what a difference that would make for making education and everything they have in the spoiled rotten western world, appreciate more!

  3. Hello Mariette, I had read before about the problem of the vultures being killed because of eating animals treated with veterinary painkillers. This is yet another example of people interfering with nature and then not being able to control the outcome, a perfect example of a chain reaction. What is really amazing and saddening is that no huge effort was made to resolve this issue quickly, resulting in such huge changes in the ecology and economy of India. What left me dumbfounded was that diclofenac has in recent years been approved for veterinary use in other countries.

    1. Dearest Jim,
      It is a shocking fact to read indeed and looking at this photo, where the vultures feast on meat, coming from a tannery, we only can predict what happens to them. Sad indeed that they almost have become extinct and no action taken and it makes your stomach turn when reading that diclofenac has been approved for veterinary use. How sad the suffering it causes; leading to renal failure and such...
      Our eyes at times become big when traveling and observing...
      Kindest regards,
      Mariette

      Well it for sure does stir our emotions and thoughts and it should! We are all so spoiled and we use things for decoration in our homes that are far better looking or functioning (never put to use by us...) as things they have to make do with over there!

      He sure did and he has been a life long great photographer who belonged in The Netherlands to a Photo Club and he won some prizes too for portrait and street images.
      At least he managed to capture the soul of his journey and let those that were not there, still see and feel what it was all about!

  8. Beautiful sceneries and people there look very friendly!
    The photo from the air, the area partitioned in squares remind me of Japan. I see such areas from plane when I go back to a Japan :-)

    1. Dearest Tamago,
      It always has puzzled us that often people that have far less than we in the western world, do have a happiness about them and a radiating smile. It shows us that what we are all after is not the essence of life. Guess the truth is to be found somewhere in-between. It is good to stop and see how others cope to make us appreciate more what we already have without wanting more. This is one of the reasons that we both have a difficult time around the commercial gift giving in December.
      Looking at Mother Earth from the air is different and yes, it makes it all sectioned into squares... and that's where people live their different lives.
      Hugs,

  11. Pieter's wonderful photos remind me of the ones my son took when he visited Nepal.
    The living conditions look the same in those areas.

      Oh sure, Nepal is just the bordering country and as I wrote already, the people often are of Indo - Mongoloid origin. Beautiful people and still so pure in a sense. Often what struck us when we traveled home from work in India or Indonesia and rode the train in The Netherlands, that especially young people looked so sour; no smiles at all and yet they have every reason for smiling!
      It was a pleasure to share with you and more is to follow.

  12. Lieve Mariette,

    Het lijkt of ik op een filmset ben beland, maar niks is minder waar....
    het is de realiteit en ik denk dat er op de dag van vandaag nog steeds zulk soort foto's gemaakt kunnen worden van het dagelijks leven in India.
    Voor een fotograaf blijven het prachtige beelden om op de gevoelige plaat vast te leggen.

    Het doet mij ook denken aan het straatbeeld in Sri Lanka en de zeer vriendelijk en goedlachse mensen die wij onderweg tegen kwamen.

    Lieve groet,Ger

      Jazeker van de 1.22 miljard mensen die er wonen, zullen er heden ten dage nog vele miljoenen precies net zo leven. Is het niet frappant, dat inderdaad die mensen veel vriendelijker zijn van nature, met bijna niks, in vergelijking met de over verwende westerlingen.
      Je bent een goed waarnemer geweest tijdens je reizen!
      Liefs,

  17. Dearest Mariette; Wow, such impressive scenes your husband captured☆☆☆ I cannot believe the train crowded even on the roof like that... hoped there won't be occasional accident falling off. Yes, the smiles in the pictures are beautiful♡♡♡ All of them really touched my heart as I though humans can be strong in every living conditions. Thank you very much for sharing precious pictures with us!

      Thank you, Pieter always has been an excellent photographer!
      Yes, the trains look mind boggling that way and it makes your heart ache and worry...
      Gracious smiles indeed, despite the very harsh living conditions compared to the western world. It is not so much a matter of how humans can be strong but they HAVE to be strong or else they will not make it!
      Hugs and love to you back from Georgia/USA,
