Delhi Bikes


I came across these bicycles on Janpath, in Central Delhi, not far from Connaught Place. They were resting just outside a construction site, so I assume they were owned by workers. What caught my eye wasn’t the bikes, though, it was the woven plastic baskets hanging from each of their handles.

    Those look like the hand-woven baskets which are found in Oaxaca Mexico! I thought that they were made locally.
