Summary

On the banks of the Ganges, a funeral pyre is prepared. Street scenes follow, before an Asian couple in Western riding gear pose for the camera. People board a train on the Great Indian Peninsula Railway. The landscape is filmed from a train window, before a busy city street scene. A group of European friends are seen having tea, before footage of boats in a bay, filmed from the deck of a ship.
