Shepherd and his flock of sheep

State of Karnataka has two extremes, extreme high tech and extreme poverty. You find people deprived of basic rights.
No access to clean drinking water.
This picture was taken on the way to Hosur, which is on Tamilnadu border, Electronic city falls in Karnataka.
Had my lunch in the town.
I wanted to wash my hands. I had to cross a long corridor.
What ? I eat in Tamil nadu and you make me wash my hands in Karnataka ?

    This reminds me of the new movie I've been reading about: "Water." So much happening so fast in India, so many changes, and so many things still the old way. The clash must be incredible at times and hard to accept.

    Ruth the extremes are really shocking. three fourth of one billion people don't know what a computer is. They'll tell you its TV, only 2 percent of Indian population has touched a key board.
    You find the clash only in the cities Ruth, there are still some villages where telephone and electricity has not reached. During my Himalaya treks I asked a villager what his ambition is, he said I want to see a train.
