Introduction to Street Life of India

India's streets are truly a melting pot of her culture. Indians take to streets on all important festive occasions, whether they are celebrating a wedding, a victory, or a religious event. For a large number of poor Indians, indeed, the streets are the stage where the drama of their entire life unfolds. 

A surprisingly large percentage of pictures in our photographic archive were photographed on the streets of India, and we have prepared this series to depict the variety of activities that go on the streets of India everyday.
