Photographer's Note

And they were in their best saris, going to another village marriage as poongal months, rice-harvesting, means at the same that the dowry is saved from the crop.

Often, when people are invited, half of the village here on the countryside goes as many are related and to preserve their cultural decency, women goes along women by transport, on busses and here on a local farmer's lorry, still waiting for some more to join ?

Taken at a small village in between Thirukalikundram and Mamallapuram, the youngest spot in the center, surrounded by the whole generation from young to old.

(PS no way that a Tamil would even think at taking of photo of women as he is supposed to know the cultural rule not to bother other women ... a white stranger can, he is innocent :), maybe a very common sight for Tamiliens but not for the outer world in the West).
