Salt

Mamallapuram

Landscape of salt-winning seeing from the toll-raod now of Mamalla-Pondi. Lucky motorbikes still don't have to pay.
Indeed you need salt with those very hot temperatures here, you sweat most of the time so you need to level it intime before you become dizzy and faint.

To remember:
On April 6th 1930, Gandhi picked up a lump of mud and salt at Dandi, Gujarat committing a deliberate act of civil disobedience against British rule by ceremonially breaking the law and making salt. About a month later on May 5th he was being imprisoned. More than 60,000 people followed Gandhi's example during 1930 by making salt and going to prison. A small non-violent act but a big step in liberation of a big country.
