Writing from: Pushkar, where having the hump is par for the course.

A Pushkar newpaper seller celebrates Barack Obama’s election victory. He shakes M by the hand, after posing for a photo with his newspaper-displaying bicycle. “Two hundred and thirty four years,” he tells us excitedly, “and now change!”, before shaking M warmly by the hand and cycling off.



(M took the photo, so he gets all the credit. For the photo, not for the election victory…)
