Everyday Life of India in the Mid-1950s Through Amazing Color Photos

India held its first national elections under the Constitution in 1952, where a turnout of over 60% was recorded. The National Congress Party won an overwhelming majority, and Jawaharlal Nehru began a second term as Prime Minister. President Prasad was also elected to a second term by the electoral college of the first Parliament of India.

The 1950s was the era when India took all the wrong turnings: Towards socialism, big dams and vast industrial plants, non-alignment, bureaucratic babuworship. But the truth is, as usual, more complex.

These amazing color photos from jcator that documented everyday life of India in 1955.
