Danger [ large preview ]
"This was located right beside a cliff. this hand-painted signage captured my eye, this was obviously not done by the authorities, the locals might have found it extrememly important for this signage to be present. for me this represents the lack of information at indian tourist spots, and how even the locals try hard to educate the tourists."
