I took this picture in Peshawar, Pakistan, which is on the Grand Trunk Road which connects Kolkata, India to Kabul, Afghanistan. For more than 2000 years, travelers have walked, ridden, prayed, traded, invaded, escaped, fought, and died along the 1,500 miles of the GT.

River of Life

Agra, India “Look! Brahmins and chumars, bankers and tinkers, barbers and bunnias, pilgrims – and potters – all the world going and coming. It is to me as a river from which I am withdrawn like a log after a flood. And truly the Grand Trunk Road is a wonderful spectacle. Such a river of life as no where else exists in the world.” – Rudyard Kipling, Kim
