Broken leg

Madurai

Let's skip the temple for now as I prefer to take a walk to Sellur, a small place in the suburb where mostly simple people lives often coming from the country-side as farmers give up their land becoming to dry and looking for some income in the town.

So this scene is not on the country-side, it is in the middle of the town. Most problably this calf was ran over by a car and so a group of young man are taking care of it's broken leg by splinting it tight with some cloth, while flies are bothering all the time.

Photo was taken in counterlight at low speed, no crop as I didn't wan't to crop out that man on the left peeping into the frame, distracted by our prensence as a reinforcement to eye travelling and the target (leg) had to be at 1/3 into the picture.
