Gumbo's Pic of the Day, March 25, 2015: A Moment in Rural India

7 - 28

While riding in a van from Jaipur to Ranthambore National Park in Northern India, I saw a woman walking away from the roadway. Fortunately I had my camera at hand and was able to quickly take the photo. To me it tells the story of women living in rural communities; working hard as they care for their families which, in the case, means carrying a heavy load and tending to the family’s goats. It is one of my favorite India photos.

a picture tells a thousand stories, Marilyn, and you've certainly captured it here

The journey starts with you. Just open that door and start walking!


Just part of the life that many locals have on our travels.

Something we often miss by doing the tourist spots.

It's good to get off the "beaten track".
