They're washing their rickshaw. They're preparing for a good day, a lucky day. So how long does it take to go up there? It takes around ten to twenty minutes. From there we'll be able to see the sunrise. Afterward, we'll have to go behind the hill. Big family. Shops, khali book shops Yeah, 1..2..3. Man: Hey, you going for boating? Muttu:Boating brother?

That's why I asked. Yeah, I need to take a lot of beautiful pictures. Yeah, there's a nice view from here. It's very beautiful here. It's very quiet at this time, unlike last year. Last year was horrible. They say "challo" or "I don't like this!". The Hebrews have a different accent. They work in the army. That's why they come from the army side. They think like they're still in the army. In the beginning, there were a lot of Russians in India. Soon there are going to be a lot more Russians here. Now because of the river, there are many Russians. There's a policeman washing his face early in the morning Tourists. They're going to see the sunrise also. Now it is the season, so there are a maximum of 10 people per day, going to see the sunrise in the morning. Yeah 725 metres. From the temple until here it's 725 metres. In the market it was like this exactly, before the 15th century. But now, in half of the market there are houses with people living in them...poor people. That's why you can't see the market very well. You can see the end of the market. A dog's being noisy. Here we go. Start climbing. But you can't count when you're climbing, sometimes. The stairs seem the same, you may lose your footing. OK. Here we go. The stairs are very old, a bit slippery. In the daytime there will be good light, you could take a good picture here. Because in between the gap you can get a front view of that temple and village. Muttu: are you going there pa? If you go inside a little more it will come Call them and come People have now made the road clean to walk on. Last year it was not clean. Last year everyday I went to sell postcards. But not this year. I sell once a week now. Because Wednesday, in temple, there is a group coming from Minar Co., they're Russian people.. I go to sell postcards over there. It's actually winter-time now but it's a hot winter here. Hot winter. Yeah, good exercise: climbing. With big people, it's good for them. When they climb they get slim. Now it looks nice, the view...all these mountains. This is the Jain Ashram. A lot of people from come from Mumbai to the village. They stay here for a month, and then go back. They come to pray inside this building.
