... exit to try and maybe get a bus but it was hard when we didn't know where we were. The dirty packed dimly lit street stared us in the face, along with everybody on it. The town had nothing in it and wasn't a place where tourists would ever stop so there was a lot of interest in us which was really intimidating. We walked about a hundred meters asking people for a travel agent until an older man told us in a firm way to go back to the station, that there was no other way except the ...

We at last arrived at the Holy city of Varanasi at 11 pm. We had a hostel booked because we were arriving so late, so all we had to do was get to it.

... ago. Now that Dahl is out of many people's price range, many poor families get by on eating mostly rice and chappati. An important function of school is to give the kids one healthy meal each day so they have enough energy to concentrate. From what we've heard, prices of basic commodities keep rising but there are essentially no jobs for the poor. A third of Indians and a number larger than the US population - about 400 million people - is getting squeezed. You can ...

... CONTROVERSIAL CULTURE

NO RESPECT. Indian people don't respect anything or anyone. They don't obey any rules or listen to any authorities. They don't care about environment or historical monuments. Most of the Indian rivers is very dirty but surprisingly it's not caused by the industries.
