I like the photos, and that they aren't trying to be art but merely a portrayal of what is A Day In the Life.

Mayank,

Just visited your photo blog! Impressed with your visual sociology! Keep it up! (Had to get this in before some self-appointed custodian of India jumps on you for allegedly portraying our great country with all its contradictions, in a negative light!The "what will the foreigners think of us?""? syndrome!
