This is a normal scene of a village street in Hadoti region. Hadoti region consists of Kota, Bundi, Baran and Jhalawar Districts of Rajasthan. This village is located near Kota. This is almost the end point of this street and after that River Chambal is passing.
You can see Electric Line coming to this point. Government of Rajasthan has done many improvements in last few years that includes electrification of small villages.
One common thing you see at villages in India are.. cow dung.
You can see that being kept on the wall for drying and also beside the wall are the dried cakes and ready for use. This is the main fuel for villagers here.

Very good natural colours. Looking at photos of impoverish areas like this one, sometimes give some perspective to our lives. Thanks for sharing.

It has been a while since I saw you active here. Been busy I suppose.
This is a fine, typical but seldom shown village view. I guess people rather show the monuments or unspoiled nature of a country.
Good picture with the narrow street and the thick wall without any purpose and especially the view inside the court. The trees form a pleasant frame.

what captures my attention here is the use of natural light. you have managed to bring out the smallest detail and the color in this composition. like the pov and the theme.

Interesting and illustrative picture of architecture and dailly aspects of this village. The POV is good as well as the light ansd composition. The picture is a little too soft, not a bad thing in itself, I imagine you used Neat Image on it...

This is a view one can find in most villages across the length & breadth of our country. The light is good & you have been able to bring out the details very well here

well captured shot of a good perspective and very good sense of depth. The light is under control and the colours are well saturated. Thanks for sharing and for the interesting note,too!

It is a photo cross-section of the yard, of the street and of way of living of that hard-working population. Good as always - truthful and meaningful.
Thanks, my friend!
