Excellent. It's always everyday life and street scenes I like the best; love this one of a bunch of kids (though shame the scan isn't a bit bigger).

I loved the India Then and Now slideshow -- what a great site. Thank you!

Ah, dammit--I was going to link to the same site in one of my posts--you beat me to it, nicky!

Hi dear hadjiboy, funny, I was going to link to UbuRoivas' link and he beat me to it and then I linked to my links above, not knowing he'd just linked to and it would have been one link mishap on top of another if you'd done a similar post, an India related traffic pile-up on the info highway. Funny, must be some India meme going around these days, what is it with your amazing country?

Loved the pictures of Srinagar and Shimla, and especially the film, but I can't believe there were no Tibetan or Burmese images!
