Before heading on to the paradise state of Goa, I took an overnight train journey to the Indian countryside, in the state of Madhya Pradesh. The town in question is Khandwa, where time seems to have stood still, judging from the infrastructure. However, I was later relieved to find an ‘Internet Cafe’ where I could jump on to the Internet and communicate with the rest of the world!
These railroad tracks struck me as something emerging out of a time machine, as I took an early morning walk near the outskirts of the main city. That man on the tracks appeared to be lost in his own time zone as he walked his dog, adding to the mysterious serenity of the hazy morning sunshine.
