A Farmer

Madurai

And strolling around on the country side I landed next to a farmer sitting in the shade of a big old tree at the center of the village of Poyakarripatti.

Chatting he invited me to sit down a little bit lower then him. I liked our little conspiracy in proudness and joy of our encountering and took a photo as an homage to him.

His name was Karupayan, meaning black and as they say in Tamil Nadu, black is beautiful ... கறுப்பு அலகன.
