Pigeons

The other day I was in a rickshaw and my driver stopped and pulled over at the median and told me it would be one minute. Rickshaw drivers tend to pull over every now and then to get snacks, tobacco or to relieve themselves, so I wasn't surprised he was stopping... but it was weird we were stopping in the middle of the street! The driver got out and paid for a bowl full of birdseed and then started feeding the birds.
He fed the birds, did a short puja (worship) and got right back in the auto and we drove off... After living here almost 6 years, that was definitely a new thing for me :) I love how this country consistently surprises me :)
