Slowly up the Grand Trunk Road
In 1963, Eric and Wanda Newby drifted slowly down the Ganges. Twenty-five years later they returned to India to drive slowly up the Grand Trunk Road - from
Calcutta to Delhi. This time, their mode of transport was a bright yellow taxi; the best years of its life were long gone. The driver was Jarnail Singh whose usual 'fares' are entirely within Calcutta.
Delight and disaster alternate in roughly equal parts - along what Kipling called
'such a river of life as nowhere else exists in the world'. On the way they encounter musical bus passengers, itinerant ducks, a Hindu Bacchanalia, vultures, elephants and seemingly most of the mechanics of northern India. Cameraman ALEX HANSEN Film editor PAULINE DYKES
