Lost in thought

This was taken a few days ago on the Gurgaon-Faridabad road. I was travelling to Gurgaon with a friend and we pulled over at the highest point for a mini-trekking session on the rocks. Saw this shepherd there who seemed to be lost in some serious thought. The buildings in the backdrop are a new addition to the landscape which used to be absolutely deserted till a few years back. Maybe the shepherd is thinking that if buildings come up at this pace, where will he graze his goats?

He did have a word of advice for me and my friend - to be careful on the rocks, even the goats don't dare those climbs. But words of advice have seldom shaken the adventure hungry :-)

This is just wonderful, Thomas. So full of the old and the new and the troublesome divide in between. It was a great choice to make this sepia! Glad to see you back.
Thomas Mathew: Thanx Ginnie. I do have a lot of catching up to do smile
