Previously I mentioned that the city of Jaipur was vastly dominated by shades of pink. Jodhpur, by contrast, has a strong blue appearance. It is attributed to two theories. One says that the blue outer paint signifies that the occupiers of those premises belong to the priestly class. Perhaps true in the past century, I do not know. The second theory says that in the past century, there had been a persistent problem of termite infestation and owing to the cluster of houses, it quickly spread from household to household. It was decided to whitewash all houses in this shade of blue, which is due to the addition of copper sulphate (makes it a poisonous and hostile environment for termites).
Here in the early morning hours, a grandfather is walking his granddaughter to school and he stops to give her a sweet.
And some time after I took this shot, a pigeon took a (euphemistically speaking) dive bomb, which missed me, but got my camera. I had some scraps in my pocket which proved partially useful to get the stuff off. By the time I got back to our temporary abode, the remainder had dried partially. Luckily, none of it was on the lens.
