ON THE ROAD

Friday - - STORY TELLERS -

In 1997, my friend and I, just 21 years old at the time, de­cided to go on a 250km road trip in the south­ern In­dian state of Kar­nataka. Trav­el­ling by bus, au­torick­shaws, scoot­ers and even bul­lock carts, we en­joyed the scenic land­scape and food from the road­side eater­ies. Reach­ing our des­ti­na­tion af­ter sun­set, we found there were no lights there due to an elec­tric­ity prob­lem. Armed with can­dles and torch­lights, we spent the night re­liv­ing our ex­pe­ri­ences.
