India Trip – Salar Jung Museum

I got to glimpse into the non-prosperous city today and I have to admit, I was uncomfortable. Even from the relative safety of the cab, I didn’t know how to react to what I saw around me. I know I live in a privileged society and that I am doing well enough on my own. I can’t even begin to understand what I saw.

Some oddities that still strike me though – three people riding on a motorcycle. Some women riding “side-saddle” on a motorcycle. Four people riding on a motorcycle. Infants on motorcycles. Very few helmets to be seen anywhere, though I suppose most of them weren’t really going fast enough to make a difference. Still – it struck me. I’m glad I didn’t have to drive while I was there.

I did go by the Salar Jung Museum however, and that was quite impressive in itself. Aside from its quite large size it had a number of items that I wouldn’t think would interest me, but did. For instance, the walking stick room captured my attention quite well and I enjoyed looking at all of the clocks that were presented.

This is the “Musical Clock” – built in the 1700s I believe and it has an entire stage unto itself. There are chairs set up in front of it and crowds gather every hour to listen to it. I was fortunate to have caught the last chime (at 5pm) of the day before they closed the museum.

The armory section was interesting to me only because it wasn’t nearly as extensive or as informative as the Higgins, further showing me that the Higgins will be greatly missed until it is similarly presented as a part of the Worcester Art Museum.

      These were canes Dad – not something you’ll use on the trail. They were pretty cool though – some had buttons that made the tops do interesting things (like making a monkey stick out its tongue) and others were just gorgeously crafted out of ivory, quartz or crystal.
