So now you got the whole family here working on the rice-fields in this triptych but most part of the workers are women, the whole day bended like this, indeed a very intensive hard work.
I noticed already that a lot of farmers have left their land for the city due to the increasing drought of the weather here. The only way to get more water besides all the boreholes or wells depends on the investments of dams by the government. Only the extended reserves dams retrieving water from the hills can make farmers to survive on their land. The provision of water around Chennai is out rising compared to the South of Tamil Nadu, half way Chennai-Madurai you see the increasing dry lands.
