Waiting in a line under the bright sky

I was visiting the Taj Mahal and I noticed that there were two lines for entrance. One for tourists (with a high entrance fee but minimum wait time) and one for locals (quite cheap but the queue was huge). It made quite an impression on me how they were waiting patiently in line (even for hours) to visit their ancestral rights.
