Gundopanth Street




Can you look at a banana and pinpoint where it came from? I can't. But for the traders of Gundopanth Street behind KR Market, it only takes a look to 'GeoTag' it.







Like most of the bananas that are sold in Bangalore, these traders came here, over the last five decades, with the bananas they sell. From the rich irrigated fields in Madurai, Thanjavur and Thiruchirapalli districts.







Even though bananas continue to flow in from Tamil Nadu, these days, the supplies are augmented by bananas from the newly irrigated fields of Gangavati and Bellary in Northern Karnataka.







The next time I will peel a banana, I'm going to pause and try to make an educated guess about where it came from.

Hi

I am a regular here. I come from blogeshwari's link to your post. I have liked all the pics you post here. Very nice clarity, contrast of colors, variety of subjects, and very accessible locations.

There is a kingfisher calendar photoshoot contest that I thought you will win given your expertise behind the camera. Maybe you should give it a shot.

Thanks
Madhav
