Event managers in India can create a replica of major buildings of the world including the Taj Mahal, Red Fort and The White House. People use these for marriages and other public events. Here Disney is created in an open field which is being used for a temporary amusement park during the festival season of Diwali in Chandigarh.

A game of cricket is in progress in the forefront on this Saturday afternoon.

Tent House

Affordable Housing is a promise of the new Modi government in India. Skeptical citizens have defiantly voted a common man’s party (AAP) to govern the capital of India, which is Delhi. Cynical citizens have turned their allegiance quickly not having seen the fulfillment of any campaign promises including the reduction of prices. People are not very impressed by Prime Minister Modi’s encounters of an another kind with President Obama who was the chief guest at this year’s Republic Day celebrations.
In the meantime some citizens live in make shift tents while new cars and mobile phones burgeon all over the country. Ironically as in this picture there are new parking spaces for cars but not enough roofs for poor citizens. Also you can see the office of a big Housing company in the distance; but these high priced apartments are a distant dream for the common man in India. Perhaps one reason is that there are too many citizens in the first place.
