Agra in Uttar Pradesh is rightly famous for the magnificent Taj Mahal but I found the streets of the city just as fascinating. The contrasts couldn’t be more extreme of course but then the history of cultures is founded on the striving of the masses that enable the achievements of the culture. In every back street you come across the artisans practicing their craft and at every level you see a common appreciation of beauty and refinement. Out of chaos comes order. Even the masses aspire to higher ideals…..
Strange contradictions here. There is beauty even in chaos.
