Rice Harvest

Madurai

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.

Enjoy

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.
