Old Glory

MuharraqGirls play hopscotch in the old part of Bahrain’s Muharraq district.
Though Muharraq Island is considered to be the ‘original’ Bahrain, it had fallen on bad days in the recent past, thanks to the population growth and reckless urbanisation. However, in the last couple of years, the Culture Ministry has started several restoration projects, which are hopefully taking the old lanes and by-lanes, not to mention the ancient houses and ‘havelis’, back to their once glorious past.
It is still not uncommon to see glimpses of the old Bahrain as one walks along the area and, seen in that context, this picture seems as if from a bygone era.

    It is a beautiful picture and it evokes feelings of tenderness to see the innocence of childhood.
