Coaker's Walk is a kilometer long pedestrian path constructed along steep mountain slopes on the southern side of Kodai road located in the popular hill station of Kodaikanal (Tamil Nadu). If the weather is on your side you'll be amazed by the picturesque vista of the valley below. Like we find uncountable wheeler-stalls of fast food in Bengal, fruit selling stalls are similarly in abundance throughout the Nilgiris. Surprisingly a lot of those fruit sellers are young people, either boys or girls who're few years yet to reach 18. Well, I'm really confused whether to be sad or glad about it. My idealist says, it's nothing but a form of child labor but, my rationalist says, what's bad in getting self empowered at early age? Somehow I feel these fruit-seller boys in Coaker's Walk support my rationalist's view and give a damn to what the idealist thinks! In next photo post I'll be introducing you with the third terracotta temple of Kalna. Do visit back folks.

Fruit Seller Boys in Coaker's Walk
He has been blogging since 2007, and the pen often runs out of ink, but thankfully the mystic spirit of traveling-clicking-storytelling always reconquers Anunoy before it gets too late! In his early childhood, Anunoy’s craving for backpacking was sowed by his father. He has been a rolling stone ever since, forming passionate bonds with motorcycle touring and photography to add more layers to his wander lust. Between see-sawing a small family and a thankless job, Anunoy Samanta manages to run his own photography cum travel blog- Clicking Photos on the Go. You may catch up with Anunoy through Facebook or Twitter.
