One of the more positive outcomes of my recent trip to Baba Amte’s Anandvan at Warora is the treasure trove of photographs I managed to capture. Anandvan is spread over an area of about 2500-acres! Predictably, it borders the Warora – Nagpur highway. And that means you can’t keep me from venturing out regularly onto the highway for a long walk. For that matter, you can’t make me sit in one place for too long. Here’s a quick collage of my highway adventures.
Our first walk at 19:00 IST on the 24th led us to a shady Dhaba (def: stretch your imagination of a highway hotel), photographs of which I unfortunately do not have. We were brave enough to eat Omelettes and Roti with Dal – and survived to tell this story. On the way back we managed to convince a tea-stall owner who had just shut shop to make us some tea.
Our next walk at 06:30 IST on the 25th led us to the same tea-stall. Shown below is the equipment used to make tea. Don’t ask me how, but the tea that comes out is utterly delicious. It’s the equivalent of nectar. You’ve got to try it sometime.
The next item to come out of this highway-kitchen was a steaming pot of Poha. We sat there watching the steaming Poha, silently praying inside for one of us to make the move and utter the magic words. Sanj finally took the plunge and uttered, “Let’s dig in guys.” So off we went devouring the Poha with Channa.
This cute little pomeranian appeared out of nowhere and showed us a trick or two. Frisky little fella he turned out to be.
Gutkha, Gutkha everywhere. No. I didn’t try it – this time.
That completes a quick summary of what you get to see on Indian Highways. Riotous and Adventurous. I wish I had time to explore some more!
