Vaigai River - stormy weather

India - Tamil Nadu - Madurai

Clouds were invading the Vaigai River, the life line of the city, with a stormy wind, the horizont was still clear.

A view of this river from the other side, exceptional full of water, they had to release it due to the heavy rainfall at the Vaigai Dam.
You can see all the sticks used to hang up the laundry when there is less water.
Across you see Selur, a poor area where you find a lot of weaving factories, the area where Ochappan lives. He has to cross the Vaigai daily 4 times with his tricycle to go to his work at the vegetable market next to the Meenakshi temple, at noon he goes to eat home.

The second time I saw rain in Madurai from the 20 years I go there, so I had to go out in the coming rain to show you once.

other sizes: small medium original
