Pitcher Plants

This plant is one of those carnivorous plants, it traps any insect that goes inside it! The inside walls of the pitcher plant are waxy and slippery so the insects are trapped. The rim of the pitcher actually has teeth. More information is given at the bottom of this post. These pictures were taken in the Botanical Garden in Singapore.

Truck Cleaners and Drivers

These are the kind of scenes - the truck drivers, the colourful trucks and the cleaners which are very typical of India. The cleaner is the truck drivers man friday and cleans the truck and also acts like his assistant in signalling overtaking vehicles or helping the driver park.

The truck cleaner here is lighting up a bidi (cigarette).

Even if the truck is white there are innovative ways to make it look fiesty and colorful. Pictures of film stars for example. And colourful cloths tied to the truck also make it more visible. Here, a little boy is the cleaner of the truck.

Old Rajasthani lady

An old lady from Rajasthan. The best part of taking photographs of old people as the lines on their face show how they have lived and who they are.
This one is a curious expression!

Old lady from Rajasthan

She is looking a little worried now that photographs are being taken of her! Her brow is furrowed and no doubt she has faced a lot of hardship in her life.

Her expression shows that she is not reconciled to it although not very happy about the photos! She looks resigned, and a little sad too.

Airbus A380 of Singapore Airlines

The Airbus A380 is a double-decker aircraft with four-engines. The world's largest passenger airliner, so far it is deemed to be quite safe with no issues.
The airport space it occupies is quite large as can be seen from these pictures and only airports with upgraded facilities can accommodate it.

Airbus A380

The A380's upper deck is as long as the entire length of the fuselage and the width is the same as a wide-body aircraft.

The sight of the huge wing is quite awesome.
