Where Next?


Where Next? With the amount of growth in population, sustenance is an issue. Its an abstract to denote what I Want to convey.

This snap has been clicked from Mehrangarh, the magnificent Fort of Jodhpur, sprawled across 1125 metres high Pachetiya Hill. From the top, it can be noticed that majority of the houses in the old city area are painted in blue. These blue houses belong to the Hindu Brahmin Caste of Jodhpur. The blue houses are an outcome of the extent of caste led beliefs that dominate the Indian psyche. Brahmins housed themselves in these blue homes to differentiate themselves from the members of other casts and belief systems in the past- A tradition that, despite the slow weakening of the caste system, has remained.

P.S- Do not make up your mind about Jodhpur from this snap. The city is not so conjusted as it seems here.

Now that you mentioned Google Earth, even am thinking in that way only. But well, for all others... Jodhpur is decently spacious, just avoid the city area..!!

The picture is pretty good, but its sad to know that such a distinct division of caste still exists in our country...
