Shots taken on the hour beginning at 6:00am (continues sequences from 89.5.1 -1a and 2a); features interaction of pedestrians and "day sellers" (vendors), the perambulations of cows "grazing" in the urban ecology and devotional touching of the cows by Hindu passerbys; circumambulations of people making devotions as the Buddhist temple of Annapurna; rickshaw drivers making their way through the square; bearers carrying various loads; combination of roof top and street level shots; scenes during the latter part of the day into the night.
