The samosa contains Wheat flour or maida flour shell stuffed with some filling, generally a mixture of mashed boiled potato, onions, green peas, spices and green chili or fruits. The entire pastry is then deep-fried to a golden brown color, in vegetable oil. It is served hot and is often eaten with fresh Indian chutney, such as mint, coriander or tamarind.

Pushkar is a small mellow town with only one narrow main street that winds around the sacred lake. The centre of activity, Sadar Bazaar, is just over 1km long, and is lined with tiny shops selling ridiculously cheap (though often low-quality) clothing, and numerous Rajasthani handicrafts.

India: New Delhi, Qutab Road in 1982

 

I took this photograph in Delhi, not long after I arrived in November 1982. It has been cropped square from vertical to give it focus. New Delhi railway station is to the right, but out of shot, and the road is Qutab Road, looking toward Old Delhi. Hotel Airlines can be seen on the left, fronting the busy bazaar of Paharganj.

There is a coolie in his red jacket on the right of the picture, and a variety of transport options; it’s not an especially busy scene but an interesting one.

When I look at the image today, it makes me realize how long ago 1982 may seem to some people. I concede, it seems a while ago to me too, sometimes, but there are also moments when it feels just like yesterday.

We are reminded that change is a constant, and that in forty years time, images of similar scenes taken today, will almost certainly appear as dated as this one.

 

It seems that over the years, the road, and different sections of it, have had a variety of names, maybe even once, Chelmsford Road. Pretty sure it was Qatb Road - alternative spelling - in 82.

Tea in Pushkar is served in this manner - "on the move".

 

The chai-wallah carries the container and stove on his head where ever he goes so the chai is always served steaming hot. I've become a huge fan of chai while in India (because it's so hard to find good coffee there). The price ranges from 5-10 rupees per cup.

Is this the latest trend in Rajasthani head wear ??!
