Picture of the Day - April 23

A goat with its young.  You can always tell a Muslim household by the ubiquitous goat tied up outside the house.  In this case, the goat is female and has babies. Often, the goats are let free to run around the ghats along the river to forage for food.  As you might imagine, there's not much food to be found on the concrete steps leading to the river.  However, there are popcorn sellers who make popcorn fresh on the ghats.  Especially in the evenings, you'll find lots of people enjoying popcorn and a cool breeze on the steps.  Its here that the goats congregate to eat the loose corns which drop from the hands of the tourists.
