Short details.

This is how eggs from small farms make it to the large Crawford Market in Mumbai in the morning:

Quite precarious. Below, a detail of the influence of British colonialism. This gigantic shoe stands tall in the hanging gardens of Mumbai for children to play in, a clear reference to the British nursery rhyme "There Was an Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe":

There was an old woman,
Who lived in a shoe;
She had so many children,
She didn't know what to do.
She gave them some broth,
Without any bread;
She whipped them all soundly,
And sent them to bed.

How strange...
