One of my favorite posts this trip has been when I finally managed to do some street photography, so I set out to take some more in Bangalore on my last day in India.
First, it being Easter Sunday, we decided to drop by St. Mary's Basilica.
The garlands on the Madonna and Child are an Indian tradition, so this is an interesting localized version of Easter celebration, I think. I think it's also worthy of noting that Christian women still wear saris.

Then I attempted to go to the museums I missed on Good Friday. Unfortunately, one was closed on Sundays, and the other was closed due to power outage. Power demand severely out-strips supply in India, to the point where there are daily brownouts except in the biggest cities. Even when I was in Hyderabad, there were daily brownouts, and all the big companies have diesel backup generators.
So I decided to take a stroll in the neighboring Cubbon Park instead. Here is a strolling couple:

This boy has spotted me:
A couple on a bench:
(Note how some women do wear Western clothes.)
And then a few from my ride home:
Up next: My trip home!
