We drove across the remaining length of Uttar Pradesh into Uttarakhand today. From Lucknow through Moradabad to Dehradun. Along the way we saw intense political activity as the Lok Sabha General Election campaigning was on, and we could get a keen sense from people on how they intended to vote.
We also interviewed families and women to understand their livelihood choices.
At nigh fall when we crossed the Ganga again at Haridwar it was like meeting an old friend again, since we first saw her in West Bengal as we crossed into the north east, then as we entered Bihar, then at Varanasi, then at the Sangam in Allahabad. What a mighty river she is!
