Allahabad is one of the largest and most populous districts in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. Also it is referred as East London.
The Civil Lines is the central business district of Allahabad and the largest town-planning project carried out in India before the establishment of Νew Delhi.
In the film we see a high-traffic city, each view is full of people in typical Indian costumes, riding bicycles or tricycles (which seems to be the main form of transportation), carts with passengers or cargoes that are pulled by cattle or even humans, free cattle, a few cars and roads with lots of pedestrians.
In some views we see children gathered with their schoolbags who after making a characteristic gesture, perhaps praying, they go to school.
