Bundles of Red Cloth, Nighttime in Ahmedabad | Photos of India
A Photo of Red and Green Bundles in a Doorway in the old Pols of Ahmedabad.
These long thin red and green bundles outside an almost colourless doorway caught my attention as we wandered through the old quarters, or pols, of Ahmedabad at night.
The Pols are narrow lanes and communities in the old heart of Ahmedabad, atmospheric places of harsh street light and dark shadows. We stayed there for a few nights in January 2019 and found we'd entered a fascinating world of friendly old communities that are slowly changing as people move to newer parts of town.
