Earth moving vehicles have taken over the once busy arterial road. Someday, an elevated train line will come up and hopefully ease commuter woes, but till then, the place is a mess. One would think that with the traffic being diverted, the pedestrian woes would have reduced, but it seems only to have got worse.
But none of it matters early in the morning, when these men use it to catch up on gossip after a visit to the temple.
I particularly liked the contrast between the traditional unstitched garments that the Jains wear during worship, and the heavy equipment in the background.
