We walked back after our dip through the maddening crowd past the Laxman Jhula and, of course, across it. It was amazing that a sea of people was on this suspended bridge trying to pass through from either side, each jostling the other for a position. The heat was getting to me by now and we stopped over at a cafe cum German bakery for some callers and shakes along with pizza. I got the opportunity to capture some amazing acrobatics being performed by the local street kids. The girl was very flexible and she jumped on a bench like a gymnast.
Kwatra’s fascination with food was evident throughout the journey as he kept taking one food or the other and discussing the qualities that are present in humus. It was getting late as I had more or less captured the science of our short journey into the holy city. I had the snapshot and, of course, a new adventure story for my blog.
