Day 2 : Asansol Part 3 after the orphanage visit

After the orphanage visit, we walked back to the home where we are staying. On the way we notice a peculiar sight which a common practice in India. Notice the things on the wall of the house ?

A closer view of the things put on the wall..... erm they are actually dried cow dung ... which they will use later as firewood to cook their meals. A very innovative way.
Back home after 15 minutes to a yummy lunch .... fresh vegetable salad ... very nice
Mutton curry with rice.

After lunch we took a short nap and decided to go out shopping before we go to Darjeeling tomorrow as our schedule was quite packed.
One of our local Indian friends drove us to town for some shopping. There were a lot of alleys like this one packed with shops.
The side walk was crowded with people and shops.
We managed to get some kurtas ( for guys ) and curidas ( for girls ) at the Mohan Shopping Centre.
Made a new friend at the shop .... anyway I gave up buying new clothes as they just did not have the size for me .... really need to lose weight :)
