Tricycle-man, hard Labour.

Tricycle-man, hard Labour.

Madurai

He was fully concentrated in pulling his tricycle as the road went slightly up and the load was heavy, that he even didn't notice me. This is hard work done mostly by farmers that left their dry land. Most of them live in Sellur in small cheap houses dreaming to go once back to their farm as soon they can pay back the local loanman asking high interests. A farmer never sells his land.
Their salary is between 4 to 8 Euro a day.

They are the reason, those tricycle-man, that I started this gallery, as a contribute to hard labour man and most of all for their true hospitality and friendship. And one of them is Ochappan.
