      Is it easy to flag and board a taxi in Eillots's Beach?

      Chennai (Madras) 7 hours ago

      Hi, Chennai VT,

      Is it easy to flag and board an ordinary taxi in Eillot's Beach and anywhere else in India without calling a taxi in advance? Will taxi drivers without passengers stop to allow passengers to board if passengers flag?

      I just want to avoid the autos.

    • Less touristy Kushti Akhara (centres) to recommend?

      India Mar 7, 2015 at 4:02 AM

      Hello everyone,

      Happy Holi Day there!

      Actually, this is me again need some help here from the locals.

      I would like to do a photo-documentary project about Kushti wrestler when I'm visiting India next month April. (Delhi, Jaipur, Agra, and Varanasi).

      I understand that there are a numbers of Akhara in Delhi, Uttar Pradesh and Punjab).

      There are even visitation tours catered for tourists. But I am hoping to visit some less-touristy centres and hoping to spend days and nights with them (ok, max 3 days). I want to document their lifestyle, I know they need to wake up 3am daily to do squats, sleeps at 8pm etc. I want to observe those 'rituals' as close up as possible.

      Could anyone recommend or suggest some contacts so that I could try to arrange with the person in charge? It can be any locations, I don't mind travel extra-mile to visit that particular location.

      I emailed this particular photojournalist, but yet to received any reply from him.
