My favorite homestyle breakfast, even if I happen to get up and going by early afternoon.

The family run traditional cart stands in the local government godown yard. Bullock carts, as posted here earlier, pull in all day long with grains coming from surrounding villages.

The omelets are made fresh on demand and served with 2 butter gilled Pav rolls and it all together costs Rs.15 (30 US cents).

The chai is second best but can be customized with fresh crushed ginger for no extra cost on top of the Rs.5

The business runs with the help of all family members. Parents, a boy and a girl. The father does deliveries in town by bike with a thurmos (flusk) of Chai or coffee.

In this occasion the lady in front with her back to the camera, is a common friend. Her husband had recommended Vipassana meditation to me back in 2007, on my first visit here. A recommendation I embraced and acted on about a month later and to date. At the time they had a tiny incense shop on the towns main road and that's how I got to meet them, one day as I stopped by to chat.

At this time she was very happy as they had just found and arranged a marriage for one of their two daughters.

Since 2007 they had closed the shop and she now does the sales door to door.

Before I left town I printed this photo and gave them both a copy. It is a snap out of a video clip I recorded, as my stills camera's zoom got clogged and useless with dust over a year on the roads.

    I like this family shot! Nicely lighted with good color too.

    It's actually a frame captured from a Flip camcorder clip. My G11 stopped functioning (the old familiar zoom lens freeze I experienced on pocket Canons before) about a month before returning to the USA. It gave 10 months of service in dusty rural India, usually in my palm ready for the occasional street scene that only presents itself fully exposed for a couple of seconds.
