Road Trip Vignettes - Scenes in Bihar

The fun of road trips is the opportunity you get for experiencing interesting aspects of rural India. The state of Bihar in North India is an agrarian country. You will experience that more when you are driving in the Gangetic plains of Bihar. 

During our long road trip from Bangalore to Gangtok, we happened to pass through the Heart of Bihar. The weekly village markets which is the backbone of Indian rural economy was in full swing in many villages we passed through. This is the season of vegetables in North India when farmers grow cauliflower, carrot, radish etc on the damp fields after harvesting paddy. Then we saw the ubiquitous transport system where traveling on roof is a rule than an exception.

Here are some vignettes ....

The highway turns into village market in the morning....


The colours of rural india transport!

Country roads take me home....


Women on their way back home

.Cauliflowers all the way.....

It was an interesting experience for us driving in Bihar. Rustic, colourful and some time chaotic.
