These are pictures of buffaloes on one of the busiest streets of Pune.
Hindus deem cows sacred and often you find them outside temples. In this picture there is a cow tied to a lamp post outside a famous temple in Central Mumbai. The woman is pressing some vermilion on to the cow's forehead, a way of paying her respects to the cow. People often buy food for the cow and feed it. In the background is a man sellling peacock feathers which are often sold outside temples.
