India is one of the most spiritual countries in the world, and though peace can be found internally or at specific places, its streets are always lively and bustling and moving and colorful, even in rural areas. In fact, a lot of Indians spend most of their time in the street instead of at home, whether it is working, farming, selling, driving, playing (cricket), doing laundry by hand, herding buffalo or cows, transporting goods, or even just having a cup of chai out in the “porch”.
