Rice Harvest


He was making robes of the rice-stem to bind the haye to stacks.

How pieceful and calm the country-side can be compared to the noise of the rush in big city. On top you smell the haye here.

The lanscape was bathing is a mercyless hot sun, reason that people on the country are mostly more black, their skin always enduring this burning sun.

Life goes slower here and people are happier with less.


I have to make a small addition here with this shot, I show only the beautiful part of this country life, don't underestimate it as it is a hard life, children helping out their parents to survive, not so long ago children did that in Europe too, many farmers bankrupted are trying to build up a new life in the city in even worse conditions, Ochappan is one of them.
