Operation Gairatpur Baas 2008

Wednesday 6th August 2008

05:00 and we were getting up reading for the walk to the school and digging. The water level had dropped considerably since the previous afternoon, and whilst the lower trenches still contained water, the side where we are now digging was reasonably dry without being baked solid.

Back to Tikli Bottom for showers at 08:00 and breakfast.

After breakfast we haqd an hour or so rest and then went to look round Badshahpur, the nearest township with a many small shops. There are villages with a small number of shops on the way there.
Badshahpur has open sewers down the middle of the narrow streets and small shops that seem to have all sorts of things. Many selling clothing and materials, others selling hardware and lots of fruit and food shops with large open sacks of rice.

We crossed the busy Sohna Road to get back to the car and continued to Gurgaon where there are a number of large stores and even a supermarket.
FabIndia has a wide range of organic teas, spices as well as all types of cotton products.
Ben and Adam were overjoyed to find bars of Cadburys chocolate in the supermarket.
