Save The Neck!

Save the neck! Todas are tribal people in Ootacamund who still follow their culture in a more sacred way but live as poor as a church mouse. Their pragmatic way of building their huts with eco-friendly material withstands even the harsh and torrid cold winds of the Nilgiri mountains. Todas are melodious singers and poets too. It is said they were the first people to settle Ooty before British. Their villages were called Munds, hence the name Ootacamund and later Ooty. Now their culture and living are witnessing ruination due to lodging settlements. We must all go for the broke before it's all lost if we want to save. #urbanprecis #sustainability #society #culture #tradition #vernacular #origins #India #urban #ooty Photo – Sarojini Sampath (@sarojini_sampath)

Parking Hazard

Parking Hazard – Carpocalypse has reached catastrophic proportions. Cars have continued to proliferate the planet and we have seen extreme congestions in urban areas. In cities like Delhi, India lack of comprehensive policies related to transport management and further poor implementation of road laws has led to regular ignorance of even basics like proper parking. Avoidance of no parking notices, shoddy parking practices are viral and can be seen even in well planned and managed areas of the capital city.
