Cows, goats and sheep roamed free at the side of the road and in and among the traffic.

A political campaign was underway.
India was desperately trying to bring it’s population down to manageable levels – they were trying to persuade people to have just one child – hence the WE TWO – OURS ONE campaign. I saw a number of signs advertised on trucks.
It seemed to me that there was a massive rebuilding programme going on with the clearance of slums and renovation of big areas.
