Flowers, anyone...

A near permanent fixture at the Flower Chowk (Main Rickshaw Stand) at Karwar is this Lady, who has been here since more than 60 years, selling Flowers, local fruits, Cashewnuts and locally grown vegetables.,74.130072&hl=en&ll=14.809654,74.130077&spn=0.009812,0.01929&num=1&t=h&z=16&iwloc=near>

Many ladies recall, going to her asking for the prices, and if they do not have flowers in their hair, she will make such ladies stop, wear a woven flower, and will sermonize on how a "Sumangali" should be.

If you happen to be in Karwar, then definitely give a try.

Harleys on NH17

A bunch of Harley passing through Karwar on the National Highway 17, to go to the India Bikers Week 2013 at Vagator,.Goa.

Caught in the Low Tide..

The river has its high and low tides, like Life itself. We, like the boat have to wait for the tide to rise, and be ready when it rises, to sail away..
