Walking around Noida

Noida is a small town across the river from Delhi. It is closer to what the real India looks, feels and smells like, unlike Delhi, Mumbai (Bombay), Chennai (Madras) and Kolkata (Calcutta), which are being upgraded yearly. 

Yes, it has four shopping malls and a fifth one going up, but the common folk shop the stores in Noida, outside of the malls. The goods are often the same but much cheaper. In fact many Indians will shop the Mall and then find the item outside. 

The problem is the lack of cleanliness, which has changed in the big cities. But time will change these cities as well.

When I call these small towns, it is nothing like the USA or Europe, small towns have millions of people.

This is not a great photo, but you can see that cows still roam these streets. You seldom see any cows now in Delhi or other big cities.
