Photographer's Note

Early morning, Paramadayanpatti-Mangulam, 6:44 AM.

Slowly the village get awakened. Mothers first task is doing the dishes as Tamil families have dinner rather late at around 20:30 evening ... too dark then. Her daughter helps to get more water from the lake.

All seems so peaceful here but later on we heard the sad news hanging as a doom over the village: next door son of 30 years old was murdered a few days before ... his brother told me later the reason: a cast conflict which happens still in isolated villages on the countryside by the strict traditions of the farmers.

Not at all a problem for foreigners, welcomed warm hearted by the villagers and the police-squad keeping here an eye on the matters. They all did their very best to make us feel at home cause such sad things can happen but life goes on.
