Bhopal, 2004

Bhopal is a nice small city in central India, which i visited in 2004. This shots were taken on the way from Jehan Numa hotel to Mandideep Plant, inside my ‘limo’ 😉 interesting to see wild pig on the side of the road, camels and elephant as a mean of transportation.

Details about bhopal (source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bhopal )

Bhopal (Bhopāl) /bˈpɑːl/ (Hindustani pronunciation: [bʱoːpaːl] is the capital of the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh and the administrative headquarters of Bhopal District and Bhopal Division. The city was the capital of the former Bhopal State. Bhopal is known as the City of Lakes for its various natural as well as artificial lakes and is also one of the greenest cities in India.

The city attracted international attention after the Bhopal disaster, when a Union Carbide India Limited (UCIL) pesticide manufacturing plant leaked a mixture of deadly gases including methyl isocyanate on the intervening night of 2 / 3 December 1984, leading to the worst industrial disaster in the history of industrialization and a loss of thousands of lives. Since then, Bhopal has been a center of protests and campaigns which have been joined by people from across the globe
