The Streets can Talk

India, as might be looked upon as a not-so-rich country globally, is praised for it’s richness in terms of culture and community. Because, believe it or not – we Indians live in a society with such diversity that we fail to realise how united we are. Comparatively, to the world outside we are very much like the other regions worldwide known for a co-dependent life. One of those regions is Ogimi of Japan, the village of longevity.

When we talk about streets, it is usually the crowd and the packed sense of a road that comes to our mind. But, we all know streets of a different kind exist too. The ones where it is not hassle that leads the rhythm of the road, but the calm and not-so-street look of the road that could still be considered the dream street in our age. I mean, we can hardly find such a street in the busy cities we live in. Although, we do see it happening to the busiest roads worldwide when the chigga showed us how devastating a pandemic could be to the normal lifestyle we all had been living. But, one of the positive side that is helping me survive this is the fact that we have never seen anything like this, not even the recent generation before us. There are hardly any survivors of The Spanish Flu who live among us.

Today, I wanted to share with you the busiest streets of the world giving a different kind of message. Photographers are mentioned at the bottom of each picture. Thanks to the artists for helping us see how beautiful the world would be even without the busy. I believe this post will be issued with potential copyright feuds, where I won’t get to speak. Although, I believe there would be a problem if I were monetizing from the blog. Which is currently the only thing not happening on the blog. That day might just be too far. And, the post might be deleted before I know it. So, don’t make this famous. Or, do.

I always thought Times Square was the place I needed to be for it is the busiest thing I could find on the internet when I started using the internet. One could argue it was just the neon that attracted me. Plus, Casey Neistat made sure the love for New York came in all sizes all the while making us love films. It is where artists perform, the engineers walk to their offices and chefs cook you food like it’s home. I dream.

And, here’s New York City, to begin with.

It does not fail to live, even when there’s no human to breathe.

No rats either.

Maria Contreras

So much to snack.

Don’t Delhi-6 me.

It is a beautiful collection on The New York Times, you can find it here now that I have already made my point.

I repeat,

Streets are beautiful, with or without metabolism.
