1994 oochappan



Srinivasan, farmer of Arunkundram, is teaching his daughter how to say Wanakkam, meaning as much as Welcome. As a woman she will be supposed never to touch another man then her husband, not even to say Hello.

This sign, two foilded hands together with an aproving waving head where the chin moves tiny from left to right shoulder and a soft smile is the key to open all doors to the heart of Tamil people. So if you ever plan to come here you better start practising before a miror.

other sizes: small medium original
