A Desi farmer carries a wooden plow & tails his oxen in crowded Indian market street traffic. Konkan, MH.

I was probably sipping Jaggery or changing buses at the S.T while being lucky enough to capture this rare moment.

The bullocks have their horn painted in unique pattern to avoid being mixed-up/lost/stolen

Although Indian in villages across India still use these plows, this was the only time I had seen them carried on shoulder across town.

Tractors had been around for decades but the do-it-yourself for many small family plots, without outsourcing (renting a tractor owner) seems economical.
