In Villages of TamilNadu

paddy fields in south india (tamilnadu)
Rural villagers planting a new crop of rice paddy in the Kanchipuram district of Tamil Nadu. At this time, a month or so after the last of the monsoon rains, the area is very lush and fertile and beautiful. Agriculture is still a major activity in this area

On my first village visit, I got the chance to wander a bit through one of the hamlets, taking some pictures of rural life. This woman, shucking and drying ground nuts, asked for her picture taken too. It turned into a beautiful shot. Life is hard in rural India, but the people are some rich in spirit and warmth
