Photographer's Note

This is my second posting on Lady of Bodi. The Self-Help Group (SHG) movement in rural India though led by young women, has also contributions from elderly people. This elderly lady near a village in Bodi, Tamil Nadu is an active member of SHG in her village. She asked about the price of my camera. When I mentioned it, she said I should have purchased gold jewels instead of a camera. She keeps a part her savings in gold jewels, pledge them for agricultural and animal husbandry purposes, and gets them back after the harvests.
